The guide and Web site provide background, activities, discussion questions, homework assignments, and resources to supplement the video programs and provide a robust professional development experience. They also provide information for facilitators to plan and structure group sessions.
Workshop sessions generally are held weekly for at least two hours. The workshop guide describes pre- and post-viewing activities and discussion to fill out the remainder of the session. The guide also provides homework to expand on what you have learned and prepare you for the next session. Note: If you are taking the workshop for graduate credit, there is additional required coursework.
If you are leading a group session, read our Facilitator Guide and the workshop guide for more information on planning and facilitating this workshop.
Use Teacher-Talk, the workshop's email discussion list, to continue exploration of ideas outside the workshop session.
