What Great Schools Do #1 - Teacher Professional Learning

The first episode in our series "What Great Schools Do" focuses on Professional Teacher Learning
This episode is part one of a series we are running called “What Great Schools Do”. In this series, we will discuss different aspects, the actions that are taken, and the ideas that ensure success in high performing schools.
What is a great school? We are defining it as a school where student outcomes in both learning and life are positively impacted. Where because of the school and the actions that it takes, students make progress.
There is no way that I have captured all the elements that go into making a good school, so please don’t think that if your idea is not in this list, that it is not important. Rather, this is a series that reflects my thinking right now and will certainly evolve over time.

For our first aspect of What Great Schools Do, I have chosen to focus on something that I personally have invested a lot of time into. It is the aspect that I believe might have the highest impact of them all, to engage in ongoing and meaningful teacher professional learning.

As a framework for this topic, we have highlighted 6 essential elements: time, structure, collaboration, direction, research, and leader involvement.
