Users can also attach files, checklists, and comments to the cards, as well as sharing their boards.

The CCRS in Action PLC is a "light" version of the CCRS Implementation Cohort that includes a facilitation guide, Google Slides presentations, and all accompanying materials needed to lead the PLC in your program - for ELA, Math, or both. The PLC uses the same tools for instructors to practice analyzing lessons, units, instructional tasks, and resources that are used in CCRS Cohort. There are many opportunities to customize the PLC to fit the needs of your program. It was designed for eight 90-minute meetings, but can be adjusted to fit your needs.
