About the Author

Richard DuFour, Robert Eaker, and Rebecca DuFour, the 3Rs of professional learning communities, are among the nation's foremost authorities on applying PLC principles in the real world of schools. They consult with state departments, professional organizations, and school districts throughout North America on strategies for improving schools. <P>Richard DuFour, Ed.D., was a public school educator for 34 years, serving as a teacher, principal, and superintendent. He was principal of Adlai E. Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, Illinois, from 1983 to 1991 and superintendent of the district from 1991 to 2002. During his tenure, Stevenson became what the United States Department of Education (USDE) has described as one of the most recognized and celebrated schools in America. Stevenson has been repeatedly cited in the popular press as one of America's best schools and referenced in professional literature as an exemplar of best practices in education.<P>Rick is the author of 75 professional articles, and he wrote a quarterly column for the Journal of Staff Development for almost a decade. He was the lead consultant and author for the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development's seven-part video series on the principalship.<P>Rick was presented the Alumni Achievement Award from Illinois State University, the Distinguished Scholar Practitioner Award from the University of Illinois, and the Distinguished Service Award from the National Staff Development Council.<P>Rebecca B. DuFour, M.Ed., has served as a teacher, school administrator, and central office coordinator. As a former elementary principal, Becky helped her school earn state and national recognition as a model professional learning community. She was the lead consultant and featured principal in the Video Journal of Education program Elementary Principals as Leaders of Learning (2003) and is one of the featured principals in Leadership in an Age of Standards and High Stakes (2001).<P>Becky has written for numerous professional journals, reviewed books for the Journal of Staff Development, and authored a quarterly column for Leadership Compass, published by the National Association of Elementary School Principals.<P>Robert Eaker, Ed.D., is a professor in the Department of Educational Leadership at Middle Tennessee State University, where he also served as dean of the College of Education and interim vice president and provost. Bob is a former fellow with the National Center for Effective Schools Research and Development.

He was cited by Phi Delta Kappan as one of the nation's leaders in helping public school educators translate research into practice.

These celebrated leaders in education reflect on their past ten years of discoveries they have encountered during their incredible Professional Learning Community jouney. The PLC process continues to emerge as the most important model for school improvement. Schools committed to professional learning communities are seeing incredible results for their students' learning. Read and you will gain simple, practical methods to increase collaboration, professionalism, and accountability with your instructional goals.

Updated version provides additional insight into how leaders and interested professionals can modify practices in order to see their organization improve from a meeting/directive culture to a collaborative/change culture. We bought this as a part of an administrative book study in the district. It has many strategies and suggestions you can immediately put into use to bring your group into a position to be more successful with children!

Authors did a great job of painting a clear picture of life in schools with PLCs. Anyone/any school thinking of implementing PLCs would be wise to look at this book. It does get repetitive at times, but then again it does make the point.

This book is part of the required materials for some graduate coursework I am currently doing. All I can say is that I love the book and would suggest anyone in the educational field to pick it up. Administrators and teachers alike can learn much from creating and working in PLCs.

PLCs, or professional learning communities, should be the wave of the future. The idea is based around allowing teachers to meet and share/learn about a common topic of interest that will improve their instructional practice. DuFour And DuFour are the gurus of this area

I had been directed to this book via someone else and as I am currently responsible for changing the culture in a new appointment it carefully tied all the things I had been thinking about. Practical and helpful.
