Professional Learning Community

The San Jose Area Writing Project offers teachers the opportunity to join a Professional Learning Community (PLC) as part of the Saturday Seminar series. These PLCs offer pre–service and in–service teachers the opportunity to participate in professional conversation and collaboration, while earning reasonably priced graduate-level credit and developing teacher-leader skills.

 

There will be two PLC cohorts, one for K-6 and a second for 6-12 teachers. Both will be led by SJAWP Associate Directors.

All PLC participants will attend all three Saturday Seminars in a season. In addition, PLC members will attend cohort meetings. For $150, participants will earn one unit of graduate credit by attending three Saturday Seminars in a season, participating in the first two PLC cohort meetings, and completing the written requirements. For $300, participants will earn two units of graduate credit by attending three Saturday Seminars in a season, participating in all PLC cohort meetings, and completing the written requirements. For $450, participants will earn three units of graduate credit by attending all three Saturday Seminars in a season, participating in all PLC cohort meetings, and completing the written requirements. See below for specific credit requirements.

 

Registration will take place during Saturday Seminars after a discussion with Dr. Lovell
