Educational Leadership

As an educational leader, you will be required to improve individual teacher performance as well as the performance of particular programs, grade levels, departments, and entire schools or school districts. PLCs provide an opportunity for teachers to always be learning from each other and improve based on collected student performance data, best-practice research, collegial discussions, and teaching experience. You, as the educational leader, will need to convey the value of PLCs to your staff while developing and implementing PLCs throughout a school or school district. In today’s challenging, ever-changing, and demanding educational environment within schools, educational leaders need to fully utilize the power of PLCs to positively affect teacher and student performance.

Utilizing the assigned readings for the course as well as additional applicable scholarly sources, develop a PowerPoint presentation from the perspective of an educational leader within an educational setting of interest to present to your staff. Within your PowerPoint presentation, describe the following:

The value of and the need for PLCs for improving teacher and student performance.
The design and implementation process of the PLC.
How the PLC will operate to promote teacher and student performance.
How you will know if the PLC has been successful.
How to refine the iterative function of the PLC for continued success of students.
Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as speaker notes for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists.

Support your presentation with at least five scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.

Length: 12-15 slides, not including a title slide or reference slides

Notes: Include 150-200 words per slide and brief additional audio-recorded statements to reinforce key points.

Be sure to include citations for quotations and paraphrases with references in APA format and style where appropriate. Save the file as PPT with the correct course code information.

Your response should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
