One of the most effective vehicles for educators to lead change and innovation in the classroom are Professional Learning Communities (PLCs). Virtual PLCs allow educators to connect with their counterparts across the region, creating a cadre of thoughtful educators who learn, reflect and capitalize on the wisdom of the group.
Many CTE teachers feel isolated on a campus, especially in smaller school districts, because they may be the only person that teaches a particular subject. A virtual PLC will allow an opportunity to find other teachers in the region that are teaching the same subjects or in the same career pathway. This vehicle will also be a way to provide up-to-date information on the new CTE TEKS that will be rolling out in 2017-2018. There are 26 courses that teachers can choose from. A PLC has also been created for CTE Counselors and Administrators.
The PLC Launch will begin on January 19, 2017. Click on the links below to join one or more PLC. Teachers may begin posting questions, lesson plans, or best practices immediately. Click Here for the Calendar of Events
