A collegial circle is a group of teachers who meet on a regular basis to discuss a common goal, need, interest or essential question that impacts learning in the classroom. There is a shared commitment to the purpose of the group. Anything that directly impacts instruction may qualify for a Collegial Circle. For example, participants could develop new lessons, explore and plan the implementation of new teaching strategies and programs, or read and discuss literature related to your subject area in connection to an action research project.
