All Plano ISD teachers are given the opportunity to reflectively set and own your professional goals and direct your learning as you pursue excellence and innovation in your classroom. Goal Groups are a great way for you to connect to each other and build community as you work through your action steps, gather resources and reflect about your growth and your students' progress. Your goal is uniquely yours-but it may also connect to work other teachers are doing across the district. We have identified broad instructional areas that connect to many teacher created goals, and will continue to add more groups as this year's goals are recorded.
How do Goal Groups Work?
This year, Goal Groups will be structured to help you connect your learning to classroom application, and will provide artifacts/evidence of your learning along the way. We will be offering each group learning session 3 times throughout the year, to allow for 3 separate cycles of learning, application, reflection and feedback. Join one cycle or all-this opportunity is flexible, collaborative, personal and job-embedded. Each Goal Group Session can count for up to 2 hours of Professional Learning credit based on your participation.
To sign up for a Goal Group, log-in to MLP and search the "Online Professional Learning Catalog" using the search term "Goal Group". Once you are registered-the information for participation will be shared and you will be on your way to learning with a cross-district team of like-minded teachers!
