Professional Learning Community Opportunity for BCPS 2nd & 3rd Year Teachers!

As part of GVSU’s Early Career Teacher program, the Professional Learning Community provides the opportunity to engage in meaningful dialogue focused on the pragmatic experiences of early career teachers in an urban public school environment.

Widening participation and equity 

Culturally responsive teaching and school community 

Problem-based learning

Instruction, motivation behavior and connections   

Planning, assessment and curriculum design

Approaches in using school data to inform instruction

The teacher as a leader - organization and systems-thinking approaches in the classroom

Participants will have the opportunity: 

  • To develop and deepen professional relationships 
  • To share resources and collaborative teaching strategies 
  • To explore the use of differing assessment strategies  
  • To examine current themes and trends in K-12 education 
  • To explore career goals
