Workshops

We give teachers effective tools, sound instructional routines,
and practical methods

Our workshops are customized from start to finish to meet the needs of educators, schools, districts, or organizations. Workshops may be:

  • Half-day, full-day, or multi-day
  • Face-to-face, online, or hybrid learning experiences
  • Online interactive professional learning communities

When it comes to language, literacy, and learning, we create what educators need to refine their teaching. Educators leave with methods that can be put to use right away with all students to promote success in the classroom.

Custom workshops we have developed in the past include topics as diverse as:
