The Passion and Persistence video provides an overview of important Professional Learning Community (PLC) components for staff development. It takes a motivational approach to PLCs.
This motivational video combines the key components of Professional Learning Communities with powerful music, quotes and light-hearted humour. These elements combine to produce an excellent reinforcement or introduction to the PLC framework. It is intended for administrators, teachers and staff members who are seeking to create their own PLC.
This is a 7-minute DVD. It can be used at any gathering of educators in the process of creating or working in PLCs. It would be a very useful and informative resource to show at staff meetings.
