I will share timesaving ideas for both small group and independent work stations that are not only engaging, but will help increase the literacy achievement for each student! I will show you how to teach smarter, not harder, and how to easily incorporate more active learning into your academic day while decreasing your preparation time!
I promise that whether you are a brand new teacher or a veteran teacher, there is something here for you! I have designed this seminar along with an extensive resource handbook to help you incorporate standards-aligned work stations into your classroom while achieving your state standards at the same time.
