Blogger Writes Building a Professional Learning Community

Bill Ferriter offers a quick summary of his and coauthor Parry Graham’s new book “Building a Professional Learning Community at Work: A Guide to the First Year.” Congratulations, Authors, for a noble effort!

What you’ll see if you decide to pick up a copy is that we’ve started each chapter with the story of Steve — the fictional principal of Central Middle school — and his colleagues who are working to restructure their traditional school as a professional learning community.

Bill’s an articulate public school 6th grade language arts teacher who self-reported on his blog over several years his angsts about taking part in teacher team building activities. Looks like he figured out at least enough to suggest how other teachers might approach similar tasks.

He a teacher techie who tries to generate discussions on his blog by taking controversial positions on variations of teacher talk and political issues about schooling. I monitor it as one of the relatively few teacher blogs that sometimes suggests how teachers can intentionally increase learning rates promptly, sometimes with PCs and desktops.

Keep up the good work, Bill.
