PLC culture in your school. Tico Oms, deputy principal at the International School of Bangkok, gives creative solutions for creating effective collaborative teams in small schools. These are among the many voices you will see united in support of the PLC process.

Global Perspectives provides international school educators and high-performing school educators a systematic guide to transform their schools into PLCs. The book includes a practical toolkit of current best practices in the global educational landscape.

Who are some of the contributors to this anthology, and what are their topics of focus?

international schools. Every chapter offers research-based recommendations, provides authentic examples from international and high-performing schools, and addresses some of the roadblocks to systemic change. The resource introduces the major tenets of PLCs and delves into some of the common themes and challenges facing international education. Contributors also share how to move from a school culture that promotes higher levels of learning for some to a learning-focused culture that is committed to higher levels of learning for all. Finally, educators will discover how to empower students to own their learning and answer the four PLC questions for themselves: (1) What do I want to know and be able to do? (2) How will I demonstrate that I have learned it? (3) What will I do if I have not learned it yet? (4) What will I do if I already know it?

Operated by the Capitol Region Education Council (CREC), Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts is an interdistrict magnet school program serving students from Hartford and nearly 60 surrounding suburban districts.

CHALLENGE Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts (GHAA) opened its doors in 2012. In its first year of operation, nearly all of the school’s staff were brand-new teachers. They were immediately tested in the first month when almost

80 percent of students scored below proficient on the district’s first common assessment. The school knew they needed to take immediate action.

BOOKS STUDIED GHAA principal Bo Ryan, literacy coach Sarah Henry, and assistant principal Brendan Hines read and discussed more than 50 Solution Tree books that were used for learning, sharing, creating, and research.

IMPLEMENTATION The staff of GHAA started building a professional learning community, relying on dozens of Solution Tree books to guide them on their journey. During the team’s first professional development session, they used reproducibles from Learning by Doing by Richard DuFour, Rebecca DuFour, Robert Eaker, and Thomas W. Many to build shared knowledge and begin creating their own vision, mission, and collective commitments. “In the last five years, we have used a variety of resources from Solution Tree to help improve our school,” said Principal Bo Ryan. “During this time, we did not have the money to attend a professional development event or to have a consultant visit our school. I just bought the books, read everything

possible, and shared the information with my instructional coach and assistant principal. We discussed the content and created a plan for school improvement.” The leadership team worked to embed professional learning into the school day, with every meeting focusing on student learning. Teachers were given 80 minutes of planning time daily and were provided numerous collaborative learning opportunities: professional learning walks, peer visits, prior-to-unit planning, end-of-unit analysis, collaborative planning, coaching with specialists, early-intervention meetings, and student-support meetings. The school also set aside four hours of professional development time monthly.

The sharing of professional resources and knowledge allows our staff to learn as a unified group with consistent language, expectations, and practices, and collaboratively created protocols. Our staff believes strongly in ongoing professional learning, researching best practices and resources to improve instructional methods.” —Sarah Henry, literacy coach

RESULTS GHAA became a true professional learning community with a relentless focus on helping all students achieve at high levels. After the initial common formative assessment (CFA) in September 2012, GHAA administered two additional CFAs in December 2012 and in February 2013, with incredible results.

In 2014, the school was identified as “Progressing” by the Connecticut State Department of Education. A Progressing school is one that has shown significant progress toward closing the achievement gap and improving overall student performance. GHAA also earned national recognition as a model PLC on AllThingsPLC.info.

Expert Spotlight Anthony Muhammad What inspired you to develop books and professional development focused on transforming school culture? After spending nearly 20 years as a public school educator, I decided to enter the world of consulting as a PLC advocate. As I worked with schools on the implementation of the PLC process, I found that some schools seemed more prepared to benefit from the guidance, and others were resistant to the ideas, no matter how profound the argument. This experience inspired me to start to research the impact of culture on school performance. I wanted to understand why some cultures were healthy and some were toxic and to provide practitioners with a sound, research-based set of strategies that anyone could use to transform their culture. What will educators find most valuable in your resources and professional development? I think educators will find my resources are logical, effective, and make good common sense. I also think they will find my writing to be an effective

balance of empirical evidence and practical ideas. Readers will be able to easily identify with the dilemmas presented in my literature and be able to find effective ways to solve those problems. What challenges will it help them overcome? The school culture resources will help educators in several ways. First, they will be able to understand the social dynamics and conditions that make

collaboration and producing an environment where all students can thrive. What’s new in your second edition of Transforming School Culture? The latest edition features new insight into the four types of educators, as well as new supporting research. I explore connections to the Every Student Succeeds Act and Common Core State Standards, and reflect on No

...educators will understand and be prepared to engage the entire school community in the process of collaboration and producing an environment where all students can thrive.�

progressive change difficult. Understanding is half the battle. Secondly, they will be able to gain insight into what strategies and behaviors prepare people for embracing change and what behaviors undermine the change process. Finally, educators will understand and be prepared to engage the entire school community in the process of

Child Left Behind’s impact on education. Finally, chapter 9 is brand new and offers answers to questions I have frequently been asked since the first edition of Transforming School Culture was released in 2009. These questions and answers center on school culture, leadership, Believers, Tweeners, Survivors, and Fundamentalists.

Evidence of Effectiveness

CHS’s outstanding results are because our team comes together each week and has meaningful conversations around interventions. No excuses or complaining allowed. Student success is the only goal. Mike Mattos was right.”

Clinton High School | Clinton, Iowa

DEMOGRAPHICS • • • •

1,100 Students 55% Free and reduced lunch 1% Limited English proficient 18% Special education

• • • •

—former principal Karinne Tharaldson-Jones

IMPLEMENTATION Using the books Pyramid Response to Intervention and Simplifying Response to Intervention (Buffum, Mattos, and Weber) as guides, CHS staff implemented an intervention process where data for every student and every intervention is analyzed by a team each week. By working collaboratively, school staff are now able to ensure students succeed and achieve at high levels.

The CHS leadership team was determined to focus on the right things that would enable a total and complete school system change: • Student learning • Teacher collaboration • Administrative “laser-like” focus

RESULTS By every indicator, CHS has been successful in improving student performance. From 2009 to 2014, the total number of course failures in grades 9–12 decreased by 79%. Results also show that students feel supported in their efforts to be successful in the classroom and, in response, are showing up to learn. In just one year—from 2012–13 to 2013–14 —student attendance increased by 3%.

Expert Spotlight Timothy D. Kanold What makes Mathematics at Work™ unique? Mathematics at Work™ provides a Framework for Focused Action built on the backs of the four critical questions of a PLC at Work™ culture and based on research-affirmed collaborative team actions. We have designed four distinct workshops to help teachers and teacher teams reflect on current reality and set goals for improving personal practice and increasing student perseverance and success in mathematics.

What will educators find most valuable in your resources and professional development? My colleague Matt Larson and I stated in our most recent book, Balancing the Equation, that the modern-day paradigm for the professional development of

What do you feel is the next step in your work to support teachers? For all grade levels, from kindergarten to calculus, the mathematics unit (or chapter) of content creates a natural cycle of manageable time for a teacher and teacher team to formatively collaborate on the thousands of instruction and assessment decisions they must make every year, as they inspire students to learn. The coherence-making aspect of this work is the formative process of it all. In-class instruction (guided practice) should be part of a formative process for students. Homework (independent practice) should be part of a formative process for students as well. And the analysis of errors from during- and end-of-unit assessments should be a process of formative feedback for both teachers and students. Our work is to help teachers and students develop their skill in using these formative processes to balance the use of higher-level and lower-level cognitive demand tasks successfully.

We believe we empower teachers to take that

action with confidence.”

What challenges do you hope to help educators overcome? Through a commitment to a professional learning community process, we help teachers significantly increase student performance as they continue to meet new demands for rigor (complexity of math reasoning by students), balance, and coherence (erasing inequities, and allowing access and opportunity to learn) in every school and classroom.

mathematics teachers requires an understanding that the knowledge capacity of every teacher matters. More important, however, is that every teacher acts on that knowledge and transfers the professional development that he or she receives into his or her daily classroom practice. We believe we empower teachers and teacher teams to take that action with confidence.

Case Study

Mathematics at Work™ pushes California district’s teachers to work better together for students and themselves After several visits to the district by Dr. Timothy D. Kanold, including a full day of professional development around Mathematics at Work™, Visalia USD entered a three-year contract at the start of the 2014–15 school year to have the program’s consultants work with middle and high school teachers. COACHING CONSISTENCY Mathematics at Work™ sent the same eight consultants to the same schools in Visalia USD since the start of the contract. Stacey McNinch-Curschman, the secondary curriculum director for Visalia, believes this consistency has been one of the keys to building trust between the consultants and educators. “That’s been a huge advantage that Mathematics at Work has guaranteed to us,” says McNinch-Curschman of the consultants’ continuity with schools. “The training support Mathematics at Work™ provides is a combination of classroom coaching, observation feedback, and targeted professional development. “While the Mathematics at Work™ consultants all have the same coaching outcomes and goals, they have been able to tackle specific needs of the individual schools they work with on their visits. “What this has allowed us to do is to customize to the needs of the school site,” says McNinch-Curschman.

54 78CCA.indb 54

MORE TIME ON MONDAYS Visalia USD adopted a bell schedule to allow collaborative teams to meet during the school day each week. The students have a late-start day on Mondays, with school starting one hour later than normal. McNinch-Curschman says the district understands that when asking teachers to undertake shifts in how they are teaching mathematics, they need more time to meet and collaborate. The additional meeting time allows teachers to have better collaborative conversations concerning student engagement and support. “The best way to encourage student learning is collaborative work by teachers in the field,” says McNinchCurschman. VISALIA USD SNAPSHOT Location: Visalia, California Student population: 27,056 in K–12 (as of 2015–16 school year) Student demographics: 67% Hispanic or Latino, 23% White, 5% Asian, 5% Other Socioeconomic data: 66% of students receive free or reducedprice lunch

Expert Spotlight Juli K. Dixon, Edward C. Nolan, and Thomasenia Lott Adams What makes DNA Mathematics unique from other mathematics professional development? By leading with mathematical content knowledge for teaching, DNA Mathematics engages participants (classroom teachers, coaches, principals, etc.) by allowing them to explore their roles as learners of mathematics. Understanding of content is then linked with the application of that knowledge to teaching for depth through discourse and the use of classroom videos. In our work with teachers and leaders, we explore the TQE Process by examining the importance of selecting and implementing engaging tasks, planning and developing effective questions, and collecting and using evidence to guide instructional decision making. DNA Mathematics leaders and associates bring current experience from the classroom, as well as administrative and research perspectives of education. In addition, we are a collaborative team that models sharing ideas and learning about best practices in a professional learning community (PLC) culture.

D D 2

What will educators find most valuable in your resources and professional development? We help teachers: • Understand the mathematics they teach • Connect mathematical practices and mathematics content in instruction • Implement research-based and practitioner-approved strategies to improve student achievement We help administrators: • Make informed decisions regarding levels of support to enhance the effectiveness of teacher collaborative planning • Understand mathematics for teaching to focus on student thinking during classroom observations • Improve their ability to guide teachers to implement rigorous mathematics standards

What challenges will it help them overcome? Teachers need to build new understandings and shift their view of the culture of mathematics classrooms to promote teaching for coherence. Coaches need to understand how to develop and promote teaching mathematics for depth in the professional relationships they foster.

Administrators need to understand mathematics for teaching in order to build capacity for teachers to teach for depth. We address all of these perspectives through our professional development resources and services.

What do you feel is the next step in your work to support teachers? We believe the next step in our work will be to continue helping teachers, schools, and school systems develop comprehensive plans that include both large-scale and small-scale efforts in order to maximize the achievement of all students. We use our current book series, classroom videos, and facilitator guides to support the change in the culture of mathematics classrooms and envision continued development of more classroom videos and professional development resources that support this change.

Expert Spotlight Cassandra Erkens What is the Solution Tree Assessment Center? The Solution Tree Assessment Center—which launched in 2015—is the most comprehensive provider of professional development for classroom assessment. The center’s mission is to cultivate assessment literacy for all educators in order to increase hope, efficacy, and achievement for students and teachers alike. All of the work through the center is grounded in six research-based assessment tenets (or truths): 1. Student investment occurs when assessment and selfregulation have a symbiotic relationship. 2. The communication of assessment results must generate productive responses from learners and all the stakeholders who support them. 3. Assessment architecture is most effective when it is planned, purposeful, and intentionally sequenced in advance of instruction by all of those responsible for the delivery.

4. Assessment purposes (formative and summative) must be interdependent to maximize learning and verify achievement. 5. Instructional agility occurs when emerging evidence informs real-time modifications within the context of the expected learning. 6. The interpretation of assessment results must be accurate, accessible, and reliable.

When educators feel empowered to do the right work, students win!” What will educators find most valuable about the Assessment Center? Our ultimate goal is to empower learners of all ages through the assessment process. The center helps educators navigate challenges and create the strategies, tools, and practices that will lead to accurate and powerful assessment systems.

The Solution Tree Assessment Center’s services include: • Differentiated professional development opportunities for teachers, coaches, and administrators • Action research projects to support team, school, and district implementation of powerful practices • Facilitated needs assessment tools and processes to capture the current state of assessment literacy • Facilitated strategic planning to create policies and plans for developing assessment literacy across the organization How will the Assessment Center help educators better serve students? We challenge educators to rethink current strategies, monitor the effectiveness of their efforts, share their findings through public media like the allthingsassessment.info site, and celebrate their own growth and learning. Educators need to experience an increase in hope, efficacy, and achievement as much as the learners in their classrooms and schools do. When educators feel empowered to do the right work, students win!

Expert Spotlight Robert J. Marzano What motivated you to write The New Art and Science of Teaching, and why now? The New Art and Science of Teaching is an update of my 2007 book The Art and Science of Teaching: A Comprehensive Framework for Effective Instruction. The main reason I decided to write The New Art and Science of Teaching is that the original version was written ten years ago, and a great deal of new research has been conducted on effective instruction. The growing body of new research was so compelling that an update of the model was necessary.

What new insights will educators find in this book? The most significant new insight is that each instructional strategy a teacher uses has a specific intended effect. These effects are either a mental process or a mental state on the part of students. For example, the instructional strategy of providing opportunities for students to talk about themselves is designed to produce the mental state of feeling accepted and valued by the teacher and peers. An understanding and awareness of these intended effects can make teachers much more effective.

How will The New Art and Science of Teaching help educators overcome the current challenges they face? The book ends with a chapter on eight systems-level changes. These range in scope from getting rid of traditional lesson plans to revamping how we evaluate teachers. The basic message is that we can’t expect classroom teachers to be highly effective if schools and districts don’t make some major changes in the system that support the classroom teacher.

[The New Art and Science of Teaching] should give beginning teachers clear guidance regarding the strategies that are absolutely essential in every classroom at every grade level.”

What do you feel is your next step in your work to support educators?

effective at the school and classroom levels. What is still needed, however, is a process by which we monitor our effectiveness, celebrate successes, and make immediate corrections when needed. To this end, I’ve developed the High Reliability Schools model at the school level and the High Reliability Teacher model at the classroom level.

Many universities have adopted The Art and Science of Teaching as a course reading. How does The New Art and Science of Teaching provide a basis for what students can learn and what professors should teach? The New Art and Science of Teaching was written with preservice teachers in mind. If used as designed, it should give beginning teachers clear guidance regarding the strategies that are absolutely essential in every classroom at every grade level, as well as strategies that might take years to cultivate but differentiate expert teachers from everyone else.

For several years, research has already articulated the things we need to do to become highly

EVIDENCE OF EFFECTIVENESS | Unstoppable Learning CHULA VISTA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DISTRICT

DEMOGRAPHICS • 29,642 Students

• 11% Special education

• 1,200 Teachers

• 6% African American

• 56% Free and reduced lunch

• 68% Hispanic

• 36% Limited English proficient

• 2% Native American/Alaska Native

The largest K–6 district in the state of California, Chula Vista is comprised of 45 schools, including 5 charter schools. Thirty of the 40 noncharter schools receive Title I funding. The district spans suburban and urban areas from downtown San Diego to the border with Tijuana, Mexico, and serves many transborder families.

IMPLEMENTATION Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey worked for three years with site-based instructional leadership teams comprised of the principal and one teacher per grade. Eventually, the professional development extended to all teachers districtwide. Participants discovered how to launch student learning by establishing clear learning targets, making learning

relevant, anticipating student errors and misconceptions, and incorporating numerous strategies to invite students into learning. They also learned how to consolidate student learning—how to deliver instruction so that students would know how and when to use the information gained.

RESULTS “The results—both qualitative and quantitative—have been amazing,” says Assistant Superintendent for Instructional Services John M. Nelson. Teachers across the system are able to engage in conversations not only about what to teach and assess, but also about how to effectively use instructional practices to ensure quality teaching.

Expert Spotlight Casey Reason How can teams within a PLC be enhanced with virtual collaboration? If teams within a PLC become skilled at using strategies of virtual collaboration, they address two huge challenges for schools: lack of time and lack of innovation. Time is always an issue. Even established PLCs find that scheduling team time is a neverending logistical challenge. Through virtual collaboration, school districts can establish digital spaces where team members can contribute asynchronously. The opportunity for innovation comes when team members can jump into their virtual PLC anytime. If one member is a morning person and she’s struck with an idea at 5 a.m., she can log in and engage. The utilization of virtual collaboration allows the work of teams to expand and take advantage of the natural learning rhythms of every team member. How can virtual collaboration in schools improve our results? Despite our ability to connect, schools still work with far too many practices that support isolation. PLCs encourage schools to break down their walls and to give teachers the chance to share their best practices.

Thanks to the technological capacities and the strategies associated with virtual collaboration, those best practices can be shared not only throughout the building, but also throughout the district, and then perhaps throughout the county, the country, and even from one continent to the next.

I’m confident that digital enhancements and virtual collaboration will make the already successful PLC process even more prosperous in the future.”

What do you hope educators will get out of your latest book, Creating the Anywhere, Anytime Classroom? My new book, written with Lisa Reason and Crystal Guiler, helps educators think differently about digital learning opportunities. It outlines how to keep learning and thoughtful pedagogy first, followed by the thoughtful utilization of technology to enhance what we

already do well. Secondly, the book offers practical, Monday morning– ready strategies to improve the learning experience for students in their e-learning, blended, or digitally enhanced classroom. It was a really fun book to write, and I’ve enjoyed using it to work with some really dynamic educators all over the world! What’s next for you in your work to support educators? As the director for the Center for Educational Partnerships and Innovation at the University of Findlay, I have a great staff of professors and other partners dedicated to advancing the work of PLCs, digital learning, and collaboration. We’ve already seen some great PLC research come from our efforts and have partnered with one of the most successful PLC districts in the nation to offer graduate learning experiences—all made possible thanks to the use of technology! After several decades of implementation, I’m confident that digital enhancements and virtual collaboration will make the already successful PLC process even more prosperous in the future.

Expert Spotlight Meg Ormiston What inspired you to write the NOW Classrooms books? I was inspired to write the NOW Classrooms books after a site visit to Berwyn South School District 100 in Illinois, where visitors from across the country are invited to see technology in the hands of students. After the visit, I created a team of teachers, instructional coaches, and school leaders to write the series. Our team agreed that educators need classrooms to visit where they can see good teaching and learning with technology. We realize, however, that a physical visit is not always possible; therefore, our books will help transport educators through detailed lessons. Through our series and collaborative professional development, we plan to create a movement around teaching and learning with technology. We also created a blog and interactive website found at NowClassrooms.com.

What challenges will these books help educators solve? The series offers solutions for the major challenge all school systems face when adopting technology for the classroom: the much-needed missing curriculum in grades K–12. Devices are now in the hands

Devices are now in the hands of many students, but teachers need the NOW Classrooms series to connect curriculum with the technology.”

of many students, but teachers need the NOW Classrooms series to connect curriculum with the technology. The lesson sequence in each book is aligned to the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) student standards, and multiple curriculum connections are part of every lesson. What makes NOW Classrooms unique? From kindergarten through high school, the lessons spiral and

align to make a comprehensive curriculum that districts adopting technology desperately need. Each of the grade-band books is structured with a series of classroom-tested lessons written by practicing educators for educators. Each lesson has multiple curriculum connections, teaching tips, and technology options. All the books connect to core curriculum as well as elective courses, and in the high school book, Career and Technical Education (CTE) connections are embedded into each lesson. What professional development do you offer to support these books? Our team provides customized, hands-on professional development to educators who want to improve teaching and learning with technology. From small groups to large keynote sessions, our team creates professional development experiences that are engaging and practical. Participants will leave each session with instructional strategies they can implement in the classroom immediately.

Expert Spotlight Mark A. Edwards and Michael Fullan

What inspired you to collaborate? Mark led Mooresville Graded School District’s (MGSD) technology transformation and based the district’s strategy on Michael’s research. It was a natural marriage for us to join forces to examine MGSD’s success from the joint perspective of practice and research. Moreover, there was very little in research or practice that provided a careful analysis of how a district could accomplish impressive systemwide learning in all of its schools while incorporating technology. We knew that the messages and lessons from MGSD were badly needed in the field, so we teamed up to identify what explained the success and what others could learn from it. What challenges will The Power of Unstoppable Momentum help leaders solve? If you look around the country, you will find a mishmash of how districts are using technology. All districts are purchasing technology, but very few have a clear idea about how they should use and assess it. Superintendents were telling us that

there was little practical guidance available to them in a field where they knew there would be rapid innovation and expanding demands.

We wrote the book to explain what success looks like and how to have an impact on learning across the district.” Systemic change is incredibly tough work, and the fusion of pedagogy, digital resources, and cultural coherence requires deep understanding. We wrote the book to explain what success looks like and how to have an impact on learning across the district. We also share practical application and examples from MGSD and other districts that illuminate the journey for school leaders.

What makes The Power of Unstoppable Momentum unique? Frankly, very few districtwide successes have been accomplished. Consequently, there is little guidance available for district leaders and school boards. Our book is unique because it captures how to achieve success over time. The book’s account of longitudinal research, as well as longitudinal practical application for effectiveness, provides a powerful “combo power drive” for readers and leaders.

Expert Spotlight Kathy Tuchman Glass Your new books share the common title (Re)designing Writing Units. What does this mean? The books are meant to empower teachers—or those who create curriculum—to design new units of study or redesign existing units. Although mostly positioned for grades 5–12, elementary teachers can also benefit from the books by adapting what they read. When educators finish the books, it is my hope that they have a writing unit ready to pilot.

What challenges will these books help educators solve? Often teachers are handed a textbook or a planned curriculum that they are mandated to use, and they dutifully do so. I’m invested in increasing teachers’ professionalism and building their capacity around the teaching of writing and all it entails. I provide practical and concrete suggestions, examples, and templates galore for instruction, various writing skills, and all forms of assessment, plus tools such as rubrics and checklists. These books will not only boost teachers’ professionalism but unleash their creativity as well.

What makes your new books unique in this content area? Many books feature one or more of these curricular and instruction aspects: backward-planning approach, lesson-planning models,

These books will not only boost teachers’ professionalism but unleash their creativity as well.”

instructional strategies, teaching methods, assessment, writing tasks, and rubrics and checklists for assessing student work. Each of my books features the whole spectrum geared to a specific writing type and its genres, including the characteristic elements and structure. I begin by presenting readers with the wide-angle scope of developing or redesigning writing units using backward planning. Then I drill down to the lesson design stage,

explain what “gradual release of responsibility” means, and share a thorough example of a lesson that readers can use in their classrooms. Additionally, since reading and writing are intrinsically linked, I share ways that teachers can lead instruction around complex text as a vehicle to help students become better writers.

What professional development do you offer to support these books? The customized support and guidance that I provide to educators is an extension of the work found in my books. Depending on a school’s or district’s goals, I can help educators: • Implement interactive instructional strategies for teaching writing skills • Define and devise various assessment tasks (pre-, formative, common, self-, summative) around teaching writing skills and using writing to demonstrate understanding of complex texts • Build rubrics and checklists that can be used as instructional tools • Devise lessons to meet students’ needs and boost their writing achievement • Use complex texts as a tool for teaching grammar and conventions
