  27. The change feeds more change...  Teachers invite outside experts into their classrooms

  28. The discourse expands... Cross-discipline and cross-divisional conversation leads to deeper discussion about pedagogy

  36. The learning spreads... Open reflection and sharing of resources Asking the right questions about best practices

  37.  PLN out of the closet.... "One thing I learned early on in my year at Chinquapin is that teaching is too difficult an endeavor to take on in isolation. For all teachers, but especially first year teachers, relying on colleagues in your school and outside of your school is imperative." -- Amulya Iyer, "Online Education Resources/Conversations"
