Anuj and Riddhi conduct workshops with teachers in City Montessori School, Lucknow
It is always fun to visit the biggest school in the world (yes, CMS serves 50,000 kids!), but this visit was especially valuable to our team members. We conducted a series of workshops over 2 days, focused on assessing the effectiveness of and scaling up the scope of two interventions we have put in place – Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) and Instructional Coaching. Based on the resounding success of our pilot in 1 campus, where most participating teachers experienced positive changes in their teaching practice and students learning as a result of participating in PLCs, we decided to scale the initiative up to 4 more campuses. Close to 300 Language and Math teachers will now be working as professional learning communities, and we are hoping to go back in a few months to take this amazing initiative to an even higher scale!
