This is a collection of activities that can support the planning of professional learning and make use of the Handbook for Professional Learning.

Included Resources

Through reading, discussion and planning, this 70-90 minute session that accompanies the Handbook for Professional Learning will familiarize participants with the principles of Professional Learning and guide them through planning for Professional Learning in their school communities.

Through discussion and planning, this 90 minute activity that accompanies the Handbook for Professional Learning will help participants articulate their own professional needs and/or areas of expertise as well as surface the broader needs and expertise of the community.

In this session that accompanies the Handbook for Professional Learning, teacher teams will reflect on the extent to which previous professional learning opportunities have impacted their professional practice. They will then analyze sample professional learning cycles to see how an arc of learning sessions can create coherence between the goals and outcomes. They will also identify ways in which each session can be linked to teacher practice and student outcomes. Participants will then work together to determine next steps when planning their next round of professional learning.
