SIXTH GRADE PLT INFORMATION Math Powered By Docstoc
					The Professional Learning Community Process:

Teachers work together to review the state curriculum and determine what is most essential. These are called
essential outcomes. Essential outcomes are skills and knowledge in one discipline, that are transferable across
disciplines. Each year the team reviews the past year and sets a new goal for success. That goal is called a
SMART goal. It is Strategic, or based on data and considering the schools strategic plans.. It is measurable,
again based on data. It is attainable. It is results-oriented. And it is time-bound. Teachers then work together to
plan lessons and assess student learning in order to meet their goals. Below we have listed for each subject area,
the SMART goal, the grading practices, and the essential outcomes. Some groups have listed how they plan to
assess and review data as well.



Please contact Dr. Battle, or the grade level administrator, if you have questions about the work of our
Professional Learning Teams.
