Chapter 1: “Improving Mathematics Achievement: The Power of Professional Learning Communities.” Robert Eaker (Middle Tennessee State University) and Janel Keating (White River School District, Buckley, Washington) argue that efforts to improve student learning will only work when we address school culture and the culture in which students learn. Through the example of the geometry team at White River High School, they illustrate the essential components of an effective learning community.
