This three-day series is meant to guide educators in planning effective instruction in any content area using a workshop structure. The focus will be on clear instruction, equity, and engagement. There will be time embedded for collaborative planning, so come as a teaching team!

Day one will be an overview of the structure and research to support it. In addition, we will zoom in on how to deliver instruction with clarity, intention, and purpose.

Day two will focus on equity. What does it mean? How do we do it? What do we need to consider? We will examine beginning of the year formative data to determine next steps and intentional instructional moves that support success for each and every learner.

Day three is all about engagement. What does it take to engage learners? Through self-assessment and use of student voice, we will design our instruction to reach-out and hook our learners into falling in love with learning.

This is the registration page for the entire series. Register for individual days below. These are indvidual days for the in-person sessions:

Day 1: August 19

Day 2: October 21

Day 3: December 16
