    STRONG TEACHERS MAKE STRONG SCHOOLS!

    At The Learning Wheel, we take pride in partnering with local school districts and individual schools to grow and develop strong teachers because we know research shows highly effective teachers have a powerful impact on student learning (Hattie, 2003). A recent study showed that what is even greater than individual teacher effectiveness is the CTE (Collective Teacher Efficacy), or the belief that the entire staff has about their ability to positively impact students (Hattie, 2018).

    What this means is that teachers can do great things and even more so when they do it together. We are excited to provide opportunities to come together to explore, learn, and collaborate in ways that unite us in a common mission of making a positive impact in the lives of students. 

    We currently have two pathways for developing strong teachers:

    • On-site workshops
    • Embedded Coaching

    PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

    We recognize that every school has their own unique and individual needs in developing strong teachers. Our on-site workshops engage teachers in fun, interactive, and practical activities that they can take right back to their classrooms for immediate implementation. We know that teachers' time is valuable and we want them to have many take aways at the end of our time together. We brainstorm, we share, we laugh, and we collaborate. Our fall offerings are listed below: (IF YOU DO NOT FIND SOMETHING THAT FITS YOUR SPECIFIC NEEDS, WE WOULD BE HAPPY TO TAILOR A WORKSHOP FOR YOUR STAFF.) 

    WORKSHOP REGISTRATION: $85 (INCLUDES SCECHES)

    TACKLING WORKPLACE STRESSORS

    This workshop provides strategies and tools for managing physical and emotional stress while implementing both personal and professional practices to strengthen your well-being. Through the use of storytelling, humor, and practical life applications, we focus on ways to increase productivity by improving your well-being so that you can be a participating member of your workplace team. 

    LEVERAGING SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING PRACTICES WITHIN CONTENT INSTRUCTION

    This workshop highlights best practices in Social Emotional Learningand focuses on strategies for embedding these skills within content specific instruction. Teachers will dig into the reasearch of Social Emotional Learning and learn how to connect SEL skills within daily content lessons. SEL Instruction shouldn't be a separate added on lesson tucked in at the end of the day. Students should be learning how to weave and connect these skills into what they are doing at all times and this happens when teachers seamlessly embed the skills into their daily routine. 

    THE WHY BEHIND THE WHAT

    In this workshop, teachers will learn how to cultivate habits that encourage awareness and understanding of why we do what we do in our classrooms. With a focus on intentional planning, preparation, and assessment, teachers will learn how to create a strong alignment between the WHAT and the WHY of their classroom decisions. Teachers will leave the workshop with a deeper understanding of why it is important to be intentional and anticipatory before teaching and self-reflective after teaching. 

    POSITIVITY, PRODUCTIVITY, PROGRESS-DON'T FEAR THE FEEDBACK

    Positive attitudes and healthy relationships have great impact on productivity and progress. These three very important ideas should be at the focus of all feedback. Many times we forget that how well we provide feedback determines how well it is received. In this workshop, teachers will explore the art of positivity in communication and learn how to give and receive feedback in a way that effective change can be made. 

    CONSULTING & COACHING

    Educational consulting provides an opportunity to collaborate with an outside source who can provide fresh perspective. This fresh perspective can aid in paradigm and pedagogical shifts that can have long-lasting, positive impacts on the school climate, student achievement, and overall effectiveness of a school's vision and mission.
