Sheryl and I have been on the road of late traveling to the culminating events for our PLP cohorts, seeing everyone face to face for the second and, in many cases, last time, and hearing about the very cool projects they’ve put together for their schools. I have to say that while the projects have been good in the past, this year, they were even better, and I think it has a lot to do with our own learning as to how to best frame and support the work for our participants. PLPeeps aren’t the only ones who learn in this process, obviously.
So I just wanted to share this overview from Ellie Preston in the Forest Hills School District outside of Cincinnati. Forest Hills was nice enough to host our face to face events this year, and we also got a chance to spend two quality days with their leadership team to try to deepen their understanding of what change looks like these days. Ellie’s team project is just one example of how a school frames an action research question during their PLP work and then builds a plan to carry it out. Safe to say in this case, the project taught them a lot about their own staff and made them think deeply about the process. Enjoy!
