Flipped Professional Development
Sometimes, campuses and districts need flexibility in budgeting and scheduling their staff’s professional development hours. This course allows your school or district to have a 7.5 hour workshop at a lower cost than a brick-n-mortar training and in a variety of formats: 1) Professional Learning Communities (PLC); 2) Departments; 3) Vertical Teams; and/or 4) Individual Teachers — during conference periods or before/after contract hours.
Teachers may view and review the segments at their convenience for optimum learning. And because each teacher will have his/her own course, s/he may present portions of the videos to students.
The Elementary Response to Literature Self-Paced In Service is for teachers in grades 3-6. You may have up to 50 teachers for $2,500. After 50 teachers, simply add $25 per teacher. We also discount our regular price for teacher materials and master copies. Use “InService” as your coupon code.
Subscription: 90-days from the date of delivery. Please specify in your P.O. when you would like your 90 days to commence.

The Teacher's Toolbox
Self-Paced Elementary Response to Literature In Service
Self-Paced Elementary Response to Literature In Service exceeded my expectations!!! I have taken almost all the other classes as webinars, but this one is the FOUNDATION class for all the other classes, no matter the grade level taught Every level should take this class. It filled in the gaps that were missing for me in the other webinars. All the tips and techniques for making this a completely successful writing program are established here. I also absolutely loved the format!!! It allowed me to stop and go, pause to catch up, “ go back and review, etc., all at my own pace when I needed to. It is the class I have been waiting for. I would like to go back and retake all the other classes, to see how much more I can get out of them. I am looking forward to the Personal Narrative when it comes out in this format (PLEASE BE SOON!!!). While the webinars are great for those of us who can’t make the workshops, the Self-Paced In service classes are excellent in that it is ALL content and it is extremely interactive in the models and the relevant assignments required. They are challenging, but, so useful!!! Thank you, Deborah, for your exceptional master teaching. You are a “Professional Expert” in every sense of the title. Keep up the great work. I look forward to continuing to retake/review your classes as you continue to improve what is already amazing in so many ways!!! KZ
