Creating a Professional Learning Community
This unit will help the DRT to design and create PLCs of teachers in their district. A PLC can be created for each block (in case of High School teachers) and each cluster (for HPS and LPS teachers). The cluster level meeting should be visualized as a PLC meeting.
