This presentation will focus on the power of collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking within the PLC model, specifically looking at resources that MTSS practitioners can utilize when working with students across a range of ability levels and learning styles. Educators are the experts on their students and what they need. Within a PLC, there is a lot of opportunity to share best practices, tools or strategies that worked (or didn’t!), and to generally serve as a community of support for one another. The ‘4 C’s’ model (Communication, Collaboration, Creativity and Critical Thinking) is an effective framework for students, but it also works well as an approach a PLC can take with teacher support, community building, lesson planning, and troubleshooting. We will talk about the tools that educators can use within different scenarios and tiers of intervention that help to both introduce and teach content, as well as go deeper and get more rigorous using the 4 C’s and connecting to students in a robust and meaningful way. We will have the opportunity to hear from teachers who have used various tools including the Flocabulary program, and learn about how they were able to think creatively and use the tools to meet the needs of their specific students.
