OWL workshops reflect the values of student-centered classrooms and high engagement. Students feel empowered to guide their learning and become active participants and leaders. By building community in a proficiency-based environment, students move forward in their language as teachers create spaces for acquisition. We explore the vital role that literacy plays in language development as students learn to interact with both their peers and the text.
Department & District Long-Term Curriculum Implementation: For departments & districts, we offer one to eight year comprehensive plans that can be implemented in line with your budget and time frame. We want to go beyond a one-stop workshop and create a sustainable professional development partnership with you and your program. We provide the best possible support as you develop and grow a proficiency-based, student-directed comprehensive program and continue your journey towards best practices.
This sequence is designed to introduce teachers to techniques and strategies for high-performing classes.
