Corwin’s PLC+ provides a comprehensive method of engaging educators in a cycle of learning through inquiry. This practical and evidence-based framework, developed by Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey supports:
Building upon prevailing PLC methodology, the PLC+ framework is aimed at refreshing current collaborative structures, and helps support teachers’ decision-making in the context of individual and collective efficacy, expectations, equity, and the activation of their own learning.
