This year, my building has is implementing PLCs in all grade levels. The first activity we led the PLCs through was drafting norms. To aid in this process, the following video was shown:
After watching the video, each PLC team member was given a notecard and asked to reflect on the three tasks posed in the video:
1. Brainstorm a list of norms, then share out and identify which ones you have in common.
2. Write down the commitments you need from each member
3. Identify 1-2 behaviors that have bothered you in past meetings
Together, the group then wrote the agreed upon norms in "We will..." or "We commit to..." statements. These norms will be posted on each PLC agenda, and revisited throughout the year.
As a future administrator, it has been beneficial to observe PLCs being implemented, and I know I will learn a great deal this year!
