Year Long Teacher Support Packages

Packages are designed for teachers needing more than just a one time overview.  Like most of us, once isn’t enough.

Customized Professional Learning
 
Building content knowledge alongside best instructional practices for individual teachers, teams, staffs, administrations, and districts.
 
Save the cookie cutter presentations for the ‘olden days’ when we subconsciously thought, ‘You get what you get and don’t throw a fit!”  When we know better, we do better.  Just as we adjust to meet the needs of our students, I believe in adjusting to meet the needs of each staff. Choose from one of the topics below, or choose a topic of your choice, but either way, I will work with you to ensure you get the training you need!  Learning is not one size fits all.
 
Up to 7 hours of customized professional development for groups up to 40 participants.  These courses are designed to meet your individual district, school, or team learning goals.  Offered as overview training in 2-3 hour sessions, although most impactful as either full day sessions or multiple sessions over several visits. The best model incorporates these learning courses into full learning cycles (PD, modeling, coaching, repeat). Please contact Shannon for full course descriptions, pricing and bundling suggestions for your specific goals.

Seeing is believing.

Small Group Instruction in Math Class- A balanced approach.

Small group instruction has a needed place in our instructional math blocks.  But, how do we make them meaningful? Is it possible to do a balanced approach? Can we meet individual needs in both small and whole group? In this course we will discover the possibilities for effective small group instruction, structures and routines to teach, and how to organize instruction.  We will also explore when, who, and why of small groups. This step by step mini course will give you just what you need to get started!

Partner Talk: Level 1

Students need structures and rehearsal to be proficient with turn and talks.  Do you struggle with dominators in your turn and talks?  Do students just stare at one another?  Do you have a hard time getting students on task, or to stop talking, or to regain control after a turn and talk?  How do you even choose partners and how often do they need to be changed?  All of these questions and more are taught in this mini course to get you started.  The course includes a step by step workbook, videos, and activities.   This course is avaialble for individual teachers or for staffs.  The staff package includes facilitation guides for whomever is facilitating the learning with staff.  

Partner Talk: Level 2

Now that you’ve completed level 1 through the first partner talk course, or through my live workshops, learning labs, or demonstration lessons, you are ready to take your student talk to a whole new level!!  How do we get the quality of what students are saying to be even better and to go deeper?  In this mini course I’ll walk you through step by step to getting basic and advanced talk moves set up so that partner talk is actually increasing student understanding each day in your classroom.


Teacher Support Packages
 
Yes, YOU Can.  Packages are designed for teachers needing more than just a one time overview.  Like most of us, once isn’t enough.  We need consistent support and resources to support our learning. This package is designed to support new teachers to a district, school, or grade who may be new to the curriculum or for teams/teachers who need or want support on specific topics/units throughout the year.  These support packages include community forums, live, individualized e-coaching and Q & A’s, etc.  Fall 2019 cohorts are filling NOW!  Participants receive a 3-hour overview training to watch and rewatch at their leisure, with a team, or with a group of other new teachers in the district.  They will then get NINE – 1 hour digital coaching sessions in which the cohorts will meet after-school online to continue their learning of utilizing their curriculum, get access to additional content and unit learning, and of course lots of time for Q & A.  This is a rock-star deal to support teachers all year long.

Staff Support Packages

Similar to the individual or team packages listed above, but for full staff support.  Packages include professional learning and touch-point webinars or recordings to support administration and coaches as they continue the work in between professional learning, demonstration lessons or coaching cycle visits.
