    February 22, 2012. Event-related resources (e.g., PDF of presentation, etc.): https://wested.box.com/s/m3d1xjtp8qkiofzz74ua Presenters: Ted Britton, Associate Director, STEM Program at WestEd; and Rose Owens-West, Director, Region IX Equity Assistance Center at WestEd. Teacher professional learning communities (PLC's) are rapidly spreading as a major strategy in the field of professional development at large, including with STEM teachers. What is the evidence for their effectiveness? Under what conditions? Evidence is growing that shows STEM teachers who participate in well-designed and run PLCs gain content knowledge and change their instructional practices in ways consistent with promoting better student learning in science and mathematics. Key issues in design and implementation of STEM PLCs include: shared goals and values, leadership support, issues of time and pacing, focus on student data and work products, collective responsibility for student achievement, good facilitation, and building trust. This webinar was especially designed for teacher leaders, professional development coaches, and directors of curriculum and instruction. In this archive, learn about: - How effective PLC's can impact teacher retention - Impacts of effective PLC's on teacher practice - What makes effective learning communities so important for student success This webinar is based on two versions of a report from a major new study, STEM teachers in professional learning communities (PLCs): (1) A knowledge synthesis; (2) From good teachers to great teaching. The second, shorter report was released in summer 2011 at a U.S. Congressional briefing, while the longer report covers the results of the knowledge synthesis in more detail. The National Science Foundation funded this study by WestEd's STEM Program and the National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future (NCTAF). This event addresses a key area of work in WestEd's new Region IX Equity Assistance Center: improving teachers' STEM content knowledge through professional development. Center director Rose Owens-West will introduce the new Equity Assistance Center and briefly familiarize participants with the Center's services.

                    We had a fantastic time at the official opening of Croxteth Primary School last week. Firstly we were given a premiere of a performance with an ecological theme, we laughed, we thought, we clapped along! Then came full tours of the fantastic new building including the chance to explore the immersive space we recently installed. The school had invited their local MP Stephen Twigg and Bishop James Jones of Liverpool and both praised the quality of the building and the quality of the young people who clearly love their new school. We are very proud to be a part of this amazing new school. Our video shows a snippet of the people that came and visited the “Kaleidoscope Room” as the school have named our space. The music comes from the jazz band playing at the opening. For more information, please visit: www.4dcreative.co.uk
