Reimagine ELA ....
Transform your classroom into an exciting place where students dive deep into projects with new technology and old school techniques. Keep the focus on the complexity of language and allow students to explore their creative instincts. Inspire high school students to rediscover the curiosity of their childhood and be enthusiastic about solving the world’s problems. See them bring positive energy into your classroom every time they walk in the door. Make teaching feel effortless and make your classroom a place with laughter and fun. I’ve developed my methods over the course of fifteen years by using extensive feedback from my students provided anonymously at the end of the year. You’ll learn proven conventional techniques and new techniques that unlock the imagination and deep thinking about the world we live in. No need to reinvent the wheel or spend countless hours browsing on social media sites looking for ideas. Immerse your students in the world of language that surrounds them, the language of novels, stories, poems, plays, movies, conversations, emails, social media, blogs, television, and songs. Teach students how to think for themselves and appreciate the beauty and power of language.
Make the study of literature fun, relevant, and meaningful for all of your students.
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.
