Bring Choices to Your District for a Workshop

The Choices Program offers one-day trainings on site. We collaborate with you to create a program to meet your school or district’s professional development needs.

What does a typical Choices workshop like?

All workshops provide an overview of the Choices approach and philosophy, and suggest strategies for successfully implementing Choices resources in the classroom. Choices workshops take an interactive approach, giving participants first-hand experience with the Choices methodology. Participants will engage in model lessons from the curriculum units you select. Our programs include work with the Options role play, which is at the heart of all Choices units. Workshops also engage participants in discussion around issues such as relevance to common core and differentiated instruction.

For any Choices professional development workshop, we recommend a minimum of 20 teachers.

What if we don’t have 20 teachers for whom this is relevant?

You can sponsor a workshop at your school/district and provide seats to others in your area for a fee. We are happy to assist you.

Talk to us, we can help you plan!

Please contact Mimi Stephens, Professional Development Director, for more information. It is helpful, although not necessary, to include the titles you would like the training to be built around, and some possible dates for the training.

We look forward to working with you.
