PL structure - Pleasant Valley Middle School

Pleasant Valley Middle School
The PL structure is as follows:
PL day 1 - strategy awareness – teachers go through/experience the strategy as if they were the student
which is followed by a reflection of what scaffolds might need to be put into place for their students.
PL day 2 – integrating the strategy into a lesson - teachers are then given time to collaboratively plan the
strategy into a lesson with content teachers and coach support.
PL day 3 – Tuning Protocols - teachers then go through a tuning of a lesson either prior to/or after
instruction with feedback/recommendations with grade level teams/coaches,
PL day 4 – focus walks/classroom visits - teachers follow up with focus walks/visits into classrooms to see
the strategy in action. Teams reconvene to debrief on their findings.
