Transforming Classrooms through Partnership

Professional Development Designed to Help You Get the Most from Our Programs

In our professional development courses, educators of all experience levels learn carefully developed practices that help them optimize the use of our programs from day one. Based on insights from our ongoing research, we scaffold knowledge and infuse proven instructional practices to drive student growth.

We're working every day to create and deliver praiseworthy PD.

We hire teachers to craft and share ideas you can use tomorrow.

We know that teachers have high standards for engaging instruction, so we enlist passionate former educators to create, field test, and deliver our PD.

Our curriculum and teacher resources are updated throughout the year.

We continually seek out new ways to keep things fresh and enjoyable, like online courses that leaders and coaches can share with teachers for ongoing learning between sessions or video footage of real-life educators modeling our instructional routines in their classrooms.

We tune facilitation to the situation on site.

New users get the basics they need to feel equipped from day one, Practicing users go deeper, and Advanced users collaborate with us on custom agendas to meet increasingly sophisticated needs. When possible, we plan for hands-on work using your own data.

Leaders and teachers follow a complementary course progression.

To ensure everyone in the building is speaking the same language, we focus in on larger shared goals—for example, making data-driven decisions or modernizing teaching methods in mathematics—and chart an inspiring pathway for each role.

Can’t get everyone together at once? No problem.

Onsite courses can be modified to rotate groups in and out, and you choose whether to repeat the content with each group or change it to accommodate experience levels. Digital resources allow leaders and teachers to learn where and when they wish.

Every recommended package includes at least one support session.

Walk each grade level through an analysis of their midyear iReady® data. Dive deeper into mathematics instructional routines. Take advantage of our supports for instructional coaches. Ensure your learning needs are met with our mix-and-match learning modules.

Your satisfaction is the bottom line.

Consistent with our company values, we put making and delivering the best courses to as many educators as possible as our most important goal.
