This book offers an innovative approach to understanding and supporting teacher inquiry groups, Critical Friends Groups, "PLCs," and other vehicles for the school-wide professional learning community. It takes the reader outside traditional sites of professional development for teachers and into the black box theatres and rehearsal studios of contemporary theatre companies.
