CLC Resources

The publication Collaborative Learning Communities was developed to assist teachers who are interested in establishing CLCs for their own professional learning. Each section provides specific guidance on the stages of developing a CLC. The adjoining appendices provide projects and resources for the group.

During the 2009-10 school year, OECTA’s Professional Development department, with Ministry of Education funds, invited applications from teachers across the province to create CLCs in differentiated instruction, early learning, French (FSL and immersion), math, media literacy, technology, social justice, and virtues. The following are some of the resources produced.
