These three-hour workshops provide educators with essential information that allows them to more effectively work with their students. Each session is divided into two parts:
Part 1 - the first 90 minutes is a direct instruction presentation outlining the major issues that educators should understand about the topic. The specifics of each course are described below.
Part 2 - the second 90 minutes includes a 60-minute small-group facilitated discussion, guided by the presenter, that allows participants to answer the question: How can we incorporate the information we have just learned into our practice or into school policy to better enable us to meet our students' needs? This is followed by a 30-minute whole-group reporting out and identifying next steps.
If schools/districts sponsor these workshops, the expectation is that participants will earn PDPs from the district. If others sponsor them, MTA will provide PDP documentation.
