4.0 out of 5 stars Professional Learning Communities at Work (Best Practices for Enhancing Student Achievement) 5 Jun 2006
By Coach Toach - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback
Professional Learning Communities at Work (Best Practices for Enhancing Student Achievement) by Dr. Richard Dufour and Dr. Robert Eaker, is a well-written/user-friendly piece of literature. This book may be useful as a text for graduate and/or post-graduate level students who are studying and/or working within the area of education, administration, and/or curriculum and instruction. It is also an excellent resource to have if you are dealing with staff and/or curriculum development. The basic premise of the book goes about showing how (via PLC's (Professional Learning Communities)/Small Learning Communities) school staff and administration can work collaboratively to help change, redefine, and/or shape their school's mission and goals. Through this teaming process and through the steps/best practices the authors suggest; school improvement, cultural change, and positive curriculum development and implementation can more likely be achieved.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sent a USED book that was advertised as NEW 24 Mar 2014
By Educator14 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback|Verified Purchase
We received a very used book that was advertised as new! The book has a name in the front, has multiple pages highlighted, has several pages dog-eared, and even had a post-it note in it that was not removed. We ordered 7 copies of this book from 6 different vendors and this vendor was the worst. Slowest shipping and then a book that cannot be given to an employee as new. Purchase with caution!
