Professional Development


Consulting Opportunities

We have consultants who specialize in all aspects of teaching writing, including best-practice strategies; writing in the content areas; writing assessment at the classroom, grade, and district level; writing program and curriculum development. We also specialize in writing-reading connections across the grades and across the curriculum. 

Description: Consultation can take whatever form a district desires. We work with administrators at the central office or building level and/or with district, grade-level, or building curriculum teams comprised of administrators, teachers, and/or parents. There is no charge for initial meetings.
