Our Professional Learning Community uses the four critical questions of learning to drive our collective inquiry
and action research:
- What do we want students to learn? (essential standards)
- How will we know if they have learned? (team-developed common assessments)
- What will we do if they don’t learn? (systematic interventions)
- What will we do if they already know it? (extended and differentiated learning)
