WORKSHOPS FOR SCHOOLS

  • Differentiated Instruction
    Building on Carol Ann Tomlinson’s seminal research into differentiation, this workshop explores Differentiated Instruction via a consideration of students’ readiness, interests and learning profiles while infusing the principles of Universal Design for Learning and Data Driven Instruction. This is a ‘must-attend’ workshop for teachers in mixed-ability classrooms. 
  • Close Reading and Text-Based Writing 
    The aim of this workshop is to develop teachers’ skills at literacy instruction so their students will be able to analyze cognitively demanding material. Participants, whether literacy or content teachers, practice research-based close reading and text-based writing strategies, and learn how to engender a love of reading and writing in even the most reluctant students.
  • Response to Intervention 
    Learn more about culturally responsive approaches to RTL that yield student success in school and beyond. Whether the challenges are behavioral, academic or both, this workshop will equip teachers and administrators with the requisite resources, protocols and skills to strengthen their RTL teams and to empower students to reach their full potential.
  • Teaching English Language Learners
    “Where do I begin? What do I do?” is the refrain of many teachers of ELL’s across the nation. In this workshop, participants explore research-based approaches for working with ELL’s, and collaborate on units of study that move away from grammar drills and worksheets in preference for those that strategically and systematically build on what ELL’s already know and can do.
  • Teaching Students with Disabilities 
    The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act is the US education law that mandates that schools make accommodations and modifications for students with disabilities (SWD’s) so that they can be fully integrated. From identifying SWD’s to instruction and assessments, learn about the most current research-based methodologies for meeting IEP goals.
  • Data Driven Instruction (DDI)
    DDI is the tried and proven approach to help any student make academic gains whether they are ‘at-risk’ or high-performing students. Teachers and administrators learn to use diverse bodies of information (assessment, anecdotal, demographic etc.) to make sound programmatic and instructional decisions to help their students master content.
  • Teacher Coaching for Building Capacity
    Facilitated by experienced instructional coaches and school administrators, this multipart workshop explores the expectations for student and teacher performance. The objective is for aspiring administrators and teacher-leaders to develop internal capacities, and gain competencies needed to support continual professional growth in teachers.
