New Play Workshop Offers Quality Assured Coaching

“Play for Development and Learning,” one of our newest workshops, includes quality assured coaching.  Now, your instructor will also coach you on how to take what you’ve learned at the workshop and implement in your classroom.  

Here’s a brief explanation on how coaching will work.  After the workshop you’ll have the opportunity to talk with your instructor about setting goals for your classroom.  From there, you will work on your goal and report back to your instructor.  Finally, you will participate in small group coaching sessions and learn how to make good teaching practices even better.  At each step you’ll receive a giveaway such as books, gift cards, and “Play” prop boxes.  And you’ll get four quality assured hours.  To register for “Play for Development and Learning” click here.
