    Your distinction between franchise and team is a great insight. This will move the participants from group to team. Many PLCs are groups of franchise owners coming together because they are told to do so rather than a collaborative team learning (not working) together. Just as the performance appraisal process for teachers should focus on learning outcomes for students rather than exclusively on the teacher’s performance, likewise PLCs must not remain at the level of PWCs. Thanks for sharing your insights with us!

    I love the description of the 3 Big Ideas. I also liked the idea of posting a sign when the agenda shifts to PWC versus PLC work. The idea of a 2 column agenda labeled PWC and PLC is a great idea!
