Sometimes professional development works for any teacher in any grade level or subject area. Sometimes it's better to dive deep with teachers in your content area.
Podcasts as Literature
Poetry and Prosody, Rhythm and Rhyme
The Video Essay and Filmmaking
The Teaching of Writing
Short Fiction and Point of View
I'll discuss 100 downloadable files including handouts, PowerPoint presentations, and full 4-week units on poetry, short fiction, and Hamlet. The resources come from 15 years of teaching all grade levels and the courses Media Studies, Creative Writing, Filmmaking, and AP Literature and Composition. Make the study of literature fun, relevant, and meaningful for your students.
Collaborate, Then Innovate
After listening to my approach, you'll get the chance to hear ideas from other English teachers enrolled in the course. Learn something new and hear from people who deal with the same challenges as you.
Teacher's Workshop started with a simple idea: listen to the expertise of people in your field of work. Take an in-depth look at the philosophy and thinking that goes into curriculum and pedagogy. Stories and experiences from the classroom will renew your love of teaching literature.
Teacher's Workshop takes a teacher-driven approach to professional development. We value your expertise and believe that an exchange of ideas will lead to creativity. See what happens in other English classrooms, and receive feedback from the experts!
