Hungry for a JOURNALISM Professional Learning Community?
If you’re interested in diving in to a Professional Learning Community specifically for journalism teachers, and you’re planning to attend the Minneapolis 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 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 that you’d like to work with. 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, find out how it can work for you.
