This guide provides a quick reference for developing strong and effective PLCs through the “plus”: YOU. Supporting you, as a teacher, is the goal—as you build your individual and collective efficacy, hold high expectations for all students, ensure equity, and ultimately guide learning for students and for your colleagues.

The collaborative work of the PLC+ should leverage teachers’ individual efficacy into collective teacher efficacy. Honoring each of these beliefs requires deliberate practice and intentionality. 

 
On-Your-Feet Guides (OYFGs) provide you with the ultimate “cheat sheet” to implement effective change in your classroom while in the moment of teaching. Designed for accessibility, and providing step-by-step guidance, the OYFGs are written by experts who take research-based practices and make them doable for the busy teacher. 
Each On-Your-Feet Guide is laminated, 8.5”x11” tri-fold (6 pages), and 3-hole punched.
