Training Overview

Is teaching consistent enough at your school? Use PLCs and CFAs to improve instruction.

With research showing that the pandemic is hurting students’ performance, schools that excel take advantage of the strongest teaching practices across classrooms. Through the use of Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) and Common Formative Assessments (CFAs), you can leverage cohorts of teachers responsible for similar grade-level or subject-matter classes. Working together, teams can collaboratively hone their practices, measure results, and prioritize instructional methods that garner the highest levels of achievement.

To help you apply these useful tools, we are offering a series of two webinars led by ASCD Vice President and instructional expert Neil Gupta:
