Easier Said Than Done: A Journey to a Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum

2018 State English Learners Alliance Conference

Educational Excellence Presenters: 

Missi Thurman, Ali Hurd, Meagan Kimball, Andrea Sande


Session Description: PLCs, Data Teams, PLTs, Learning Teams – whatever you call them, these data-driven teams can quickly become a source of real frustration for all involved. Well-meaning but unintentional misteps are often made in initial implementation, setting these teams up for failure despite their enormous potential for improving student outcomes. During this session, we will take a deeper look at the reasons why good teachers sometimes hate PLCs and explore options for improving the culture of collaboration at your site.

"I Hate PLCs: Changing the Battle Cry"

Educational Excellence Presenters: 

Missi Thurman, Ali Hurd, Meagan Kimball


Session Description: PLCs, Data Teams, PLTs, Learning Teams – whatever you call them, these data-driven teams can quickly become a source of real frustration for all involved. Well-meaning but unintentional misteps are often made in initial implementation, setting these teams up for failure despite their enormous potential for improving student outcomes. During this session, we will take a deeper look at the reasons why good teachers sometimes hate PLCs and explore options for improving the culture of collaboration at your site. We will also examine the positive differences it has made in student achievement in Oregon schools. Participants will review the difference between critical and “nice to have” elements of successful data team implementation. Participants and trainers will also identify common p​itfalls and concerns that lead to frustration and fatigue for those involved.
