From feedback survey:
“The downloads are helpful. Some of the topics are ones that I struggle to make interesting for my students, and the ideas that Scott presents are great to help me engage my students … You've touched on most things I teach to my students … You're engaging and clearly love what you do. The projects you've created have given me great ideas to use in my own classes for the kids." - Jacqueline S.
The Art of Innovation
Teaching teenagers requires a lot of creativity. Teaching is an art form that takes years to master. I've learned the most by listening to people with real classroom experience. We're not in the trenches, we're on the shoreline, gazing at a limitless horizon.
Teacher's Workshop started with a simple idea: listen to the expertise of people in your content area. 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.
Experience practical and relevant professional development that focuses on the teaching of literature. Learn how to inspire your students to love reading and the study of literature. My courses cover topics relevant to the day-to-day challenges of high school English teachers.
