Text - Tips for finding study group members

Rochelle Lee Teacher Award study groups are school-based professional learning communities. Study groups develop a goal to guide their learning throughout the school year. Forming a study group can sometimes feel daunting.

Here are some tips to help you start:
  1. Chat with 4-5 colleagues about Study Groups. The colleagues can be from different grades and different content areas. What’s important is that everyone is interested in working on improving their teaching practice and wants to collaborate to have a bigger impact at your school. 
  2. Show colleagues the application questions and rubric on our website. 
  3. Discuss among your group the instructional topic or goal you will work on for the year. Topics can vary and can start broad; your group will work to refine the goal if your group is accepted.
  4. Make sure each member submits an application with their responses.
