Explicit Instruction — Learning Is the Goal, Effective Teaching Is the Practice

This session is designed for professional developers, administrators, and teacher-leaders who recognize the incredible impact that systematic, direct, engaging, and success-oriented instruction can have on students, teachers, and schools—people who exemplify the idea that how well students learn depends on how well they’re taught. This session will immerse practitioners in the theory and practice of designing and delivering instruction in a manner that is systematic, direct, engaging, and success oriented—in a word: explicit. Participants will be prepared to provide this training to educators in their home districts.

Coaching Classroom Management

Coaching is a critical piece to assist teachers across learning environments, whether it’s traditional brick and mortar, distance learning, or virtual instruction. In this online course, instructional and behavioral coaches, as well as administrators and any personnel who work one-on-one with classroom teachers, will learn how to help teachers better navigate the world of classroom management in any environment. By taking what we know to be effective in traditional learning environments and tailoring it across academic landscapes, this course will help coaches alleviate the pressures our teachers face in creating and maintaining effective classroom management plans.

CHAMPS Classroom Management

Student misbehavior continues to be a leading frustration for teachers and a drain on instructional time. CHAMPS is designed to help any educator develop (or fine-tune) an effective classroom management plan for grades K-8. Participants will learn and discuss classroom management strategies that improve the classroom climate and reduce disruptions in both socially distanced face-to-face and virtual learning environments.  The CHAMPS approach emphasizes the use of clear expectations and positive relationships to increase student motivation and reduce off-task behavior during instruction and independent work periods in the classroom and online.
