Model Teaching’s comprehensive menu of courses are designed to provide classroom-relevant training to developing teachers, experienced teachers, and teachers not currently in the classroom but who wish to maintain their license or advance their salary while learning valuable new instructional strategies.

In addition to this guided instruction, we also provide teachers with the tools, resources, templates, and planning outlines needed to put together a plan of action into their current or future classroom.  At the conclusion of your course, you will receive a certificate of completion, documenting your earned credit hours.  View our Course Menu now to find the right course for you!

I have learned so much and improved my teaching tremendously since taking these courses- I wish we could use these courses in place of our teacher in-service!

This course was very thorough in explaining what Claim Evidence Reasoning CER in the Science Classroom is and how to implement CER writing in the classroom. The course gave great resources, as well as offering practice and reflection.

This course was an excellent intro for Literacy Stations for PreK-2nd Grade. I found the lessons, reflections, and videos helpful and easy to follow. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to educate themselves more about literacy stations.

I have really enjoyed these courses and I have learned so much! I am using these courses to complete re-certification, but since I have access to these courses for a year, I plan to review them all again once I begin teaching. I will be printing out and using all the resources and templates in my classroom!

This course was amazing. I have no training in reading instruction, but I know my [future classes] will include students who are well below their grade level in reading. I want to be able to help them become better readers before they leave my class.
