Tired of traditional PD that's not related to your content area? How fun would it be to hear stories about what other high school English teachers do in their classroom and get an explanation of their curriculum? When was the last time you had a conversation with a high school English teacher outside of your district?
Teacher's Workshop provides you with the opportunity to experience meaningful, practical professional development that will renew your love of teaching literature and expose you to fresh ideas from around the country.
Teacher’s Workshop sees our goal as teachers to:
- challenge students to create and analyze complex writing
- make the study of literature meaningful and fun
- teach practical communication skills for all real-life situations
- create assignments using new technologies
- foster intrinsic motivation and an appreciation of deep thinking
Teacher’s Workshop runs courses using Voicethread, a simple, easy to use platform. Once you register for the course, you will receive an email about creating an account on voicethread.com. Your instructor will then add you to the group.
