I thought the whole workshop was very informative—the entire Inquiry by Design process for driving students deeper into a text and helping them write text-based arguments.
Rebecca TempletTeacherNew Orleans (LA)

Our workshops help educators get smarter about current issues related to teaching and learning in English language arts and disciplinary literacy in content areas such as science and social studies. Our workshops address a wide range of challenges, such as aligning reading and writing work with Common Core assessments in English language arts, working with complex texts, and effective use of text and task progressions.

Participants leave our workshops energized about teaching and learning and with a clearer understanding of what standards-aligned, student-centered instruction looks like in the classroom.
