The implications of your findings from the â€œPersonal Change Readiness Assessmentâ€ and the â€œOrganizational Change Readiness Assessmentâ€ related to the professional development program that you will plan to implement in this course. Is your environment and are your stakeholders culturally ready for change? Why or why not? Share information from the â€œCommunity Middle School: A Case Story of Implementationâ€ that will inform your implementation efforts. Your current assessment of the strengths and challenges in your school or district in supporting PLCs as a way to enhance professional development implementation efforts. Ask for advice about one or more of the conditions you described related to your school or districtâ€™s orientation to change and/or about PLCs as practiced in your school or district. As this weekâ€™s Learning Resources emphasize, an important step in implementing a professional development program is making sure that you understand your own readiness for change as well as your organizationâ€™s readiness for change. From there, you can create, or build upon, conditions that allow the implementation of a new program or innovation to begin smoothly so that you may continue to provide the time and leadership support throughout the process. In this weekâ€™s Learning Resources, you were instructed to complete both the â€œPersonal Change Readiness Assessmentâ€ and the â€œOrganizational Change Readiness Assessmentâ€ in the Reeves book excerpt. What were your results on the change readiness matrix? Reflect on these results as follows: What are the implications of your own and your school or districtâ€™s orientation to change? How effectively are you and your organization creating conditions for success in terms of providing time and leadership as well as fostering stakeholder (e.g., community/family) support? What insights about personal and organizational readiness for change did you gain from reading Chapter 1, â€œIdentifying the Need for Change,â€ in â€œCommunity Middle School: A Case Story of Implementationâ€? Consider the role of professional learning communities (PLCs) as discussed by Shirley Hord in this weekâ€™s â€œProfessional Learning Communitiesâ€ video program. What are the strengths and challenges related to collaborative professional learning in your school or district?
