Examine Figure 2 in School Capacity
and Student Achievement (p. 8). Then search Library databases for
two articles discussing the benefits of a professional learning community to
school culture. Using this research, design a professional development plan for
your school that will positively impact school culture. In a three- to
five-page paper, discuss the following:
Summarize your research
and the research in Figure 2 (Joyce & Showers, 1995).
How is this research
applicable to your work setting?
Discuss the professional
development plan that you have created.
How will this plan
benefit school culture?
Integrate the research
you have found on professional development and include appropriate references
within your discussion.
