Upcoming Webinars

A Dynamic Duo: Multisensory Literacy and the Science of Reading

Presented by Kristin Gigliotti

As educators, there is no greater mission than ensuring all students are successful, joyful readers. The Science of Reading and Multisensory Learning are front and center in literacy instruction today. What exactly do these terms mean and how do they work together? How do they translate from theory to classroom practice? Watching students learn to read is magic but knowing how they get there is science.

Join us for a free workshop to deepen your understanding of the science of reading and multisensory literacy and how to apply this “dynamic duo” in your classroom or school.

Using Hands-On Tools to Monitor Progress and Assess Students in Math

Presented by Skip Fennell

Formative assessment is a powerful tool for improving teaching and increasing student learning, particularly in mathematics.  Using hands-on tools to assess students is not only a more accessible and equitable way to monitor progress, it’s a more effective way to assess.  For many students, hands-on tools are a way to make their thinking visible. By including manipulatives as a routine part of assessing students, teachers create opportunities for insight. 

Join us for a free workshop to explore why utilizing manipulatives and hands-on tools to assess benefits both the learner and the teacher and learn how to implement and manage a hands-on approach to assessing your students in math!


Mastering Manipulatives Mini-Webinar Series

Join us for a brand new, mini-webinar series all about manipulatives! Manipulatives are important tools that helps students build connections in both math and literacy. When used properly, manipulatives become a tool students use to make sense of complex or abstract concepts. They also create learning opportunities that engage both sides of the brain which helps students get to a much deeper level of understanding and meaning.
