If you’re interested in diving in to a Professional Learning Community (PLC) specifically for journalism teachers and you’re planning to attend the San Francisco, CA convention, consider signing up for the Thursday pre-convention workshop.
The opportunity to connect with other journalism professionals can be such a rejuvenating experience. It’s a way to get excited about teaching again if you feel like you’re stuck in a rut. Your PLC could help you develop new teaching strategies and truly improve student learning in your classroom.
This day-long workshop will give you the opportunity to connect with other journalism teachers from across the country. You’ll start a group, work through developing norms for your PLC and hopefully establish a SMART goal before the end of the day.
Maybe you already have some colleagues in your area or region with whom you’d like to work. You all could participate as a group, or you can start a new group on-site that day. We’ll walk you through challenges you might face when it comes to communicating with your group long-distance.
If you’re not quite ready to join a new group but want to establish a PLC with teachers near your home, attend the workshop to find out what PLCs are all about. Ask questions about the model and find out how it can work for you.
You can find information about the convention, including the registration booklet that will include information on how to sign up for the PLC pre-convention workshop, at this link.
See you there.
