Very accessible step-by-step guide

Review by Larry Ferlazzo, ELL teacher and Edublogger, Sacramento, California
Rate this product
Bill Ferriter and Parry Graham have put together a very accessible step-by-step guide on how to go about creating this kind of culture [professional learning communities], including ways to trouble-shoot potential challenges. The questions that it encourages readers to ask themselves and their colleagues might be the most important parts of Building a Professional Learning Community at Work™. (Posted on 5/27/11)

Terrific resource!

Review by Anne Jolly, Educational consultant and president of PLTWorks

What an absolutely terrific resource! You’ve done a great job of organizing the book—starting each chapter with a real-life story and ending with a set of practical tools that are well thought out and tailored for the initiative. I guess my main question would be, what don’t I like about your book? It’s well designed, well written, and packed with useful stuff. Well done! I foresee a really bright future for you as an author. Most of all, I foresee bright futures for a lot of people because of you. (Posted on 5/27/11)
