Responding to Learning Needs

What is a curated workshop series?

A set of workshops deliberately designed and sequenced to build skills in one topic, from the fundamentals to advanced techniques. Through community, discussion, and multiple opportunities to practice, teachers hone new strategies they can use right away.

Responding to Learning Needs


Addressing gaps students is critical to ensure students can engage with on-grade level content. This workshop series focuses on strategies to maintain high standards for students while giving them the responsive support they need to accomplish learning targets. These strategies include methods for scaffolding instruction, using think alouds to explicitly reteach concepts, and using student work as a tool to facilitate inquiry based reteaching. By the end of this workshop series, educators are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to respond to student learning needs in a targeted and supportive way.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to…

Apply scaffolds to lessons to support learners in meeting grade-level standards

Plan and implement think alouds to make cognitive processes explicit and accessible to students

Leverage student work in classroom discussions to facilitate learning

Hearing from Our Partners

It was so refreshing to attend a professional development session that modeled best practices! It's so much easier to internalize and visualize what it can look like when you get to see it first.

Lindsay Miller, Special Education Instructional Coach, Bullitt County Public Schools

Tangible strategies and resources, with opportunities for practice in a safe space. Thank you!

Rosa Joo, Green Dot Public Schools, Teacher Effectiveness Specialist

Our facilitator was very inclusive, mindful of our time, and also did a great job of teaching adults. (Not always easy to do)

Katie Stuhmer, Teacher Harding University High, Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools

This was the best facilitated online session I have attended. It was so smoothly, calmly, and sensitively led. What a great model for our teachers and for myself as a leader. I am blown away by how engaging, organized, and meaningful this session was.
