JOHOR SBP Professional Learning Community

Date: 11 May 2016 (Wednesday)
Venue: SM Sains Sembrong, Kluang

Thoroughly enjoyed myself doing this PLC. I could feel that adrenaline rush after years of not training teachers and gave it my all. This was a PLC for English teachers for the eight residential schools in Johor namely, Sekolah Tun Fatimah, SM Sains Muar, SM Kota Tinggi, SM Sains Johor, SM Sains Batu Pahat, SM Sultan Mahmud Iskandar Mersing and SM Sains Sembrong, Kluang (hope I didn't miss anyone!) Glad to be able to share for our professional development. My principal whispered that this will be an annual affair in sha Allah....SBP Johor should collaborate more and share materials and expertise. In this session we relooked assessment for Continuous Writing, dabbled in a bit of item-building, shared our programmes in school and looked at HOTs items in the SPM past years papers. 

Some of the programmes run by the schools were English in Camp, Public-Speaking, DEAR, Lesson Study, and performance-based extra classes. I was pleased when STF attributed its success in the 2015 SPM (GPS 0.93) to the setting system and journal-writing :) especially so with journal writing as I've been promoting this to my panel for years. Some times, it takes others to convince us of the benefits of something :)

Congrats to all teachers who were present! 

Happy teaching!
