Modeling and Coaching Sessions

These demonstration sessions provide hands-on personal support and take place in classrooms, where consultants model lessons, student conferences, and/or small-group instruction. Coaches actively participate in this process by taking notes, asking questions and reflecting on what they have observed and learned in order to fully understand, emulate, and re-teach. Each day often includes two or three sessions with varying grade level groups of teachers. CONTACT US TODAY TO LEARN MORE

Workshops, Institutes, and Courses

Our workshops, institutes (typically 2-3 consecutive days of workshops), and courses (a series of workshops over a designated period of time), may take place at individual schools, districts, regional locations and virtually.

Enhancing teaching and learning requires not only deep understandings of effective literacy practices, reading and writing processes, state and/or national student standards, but also the ability for schools and districts to build capacity and share such vital knowledge and information internally. Schoolwide’s coaching workshops, institutes, and courses are designed to deepen knowledge and understanding, and build capacity. Workshop sessions are informational, engaging and interactive; and full of valuable resources and practical information that will impact instruction right away. Workshops can focus on numerous and various topics related to ELA instruction and Schoolwide can work with you to identify particular areas of need.CONTACT US TODAY TO LEARN MORE

PLC and Collegial Study Groups

Schoolwide supports schools in establishing and sustaining their own Professional Learning Community (PLC) or Study Group. Educators who have participated in a book club know how the power of collaboration, collegial conversation, and study, can lift the level of understanding. Our literacy consultants initially work collaboratively with educators to determine a focus for systematic inquiry and research and subsequently provide the necessary training and support to help school-based teams take ownership of the inquiry process. Schoolwide facilitated PLCs and Study Groups may be comprised of participants from an individual school or district, or regionally to include participants from various nearby schools and districts. PLCs and Study Groups typically utilize a variety of digital platforms to support and enhance continuous communication, information sharing, problem-solving, and celebrating.CONTACT US TODAY TO LEARN MORE
