Model Teaching’s comprehensive menu of courses are designed to provide classroom-relevant training to developing teachers. While most professional development only covers the theory behind a particular classroom strategy, our courses actually guide teachers through the necessary steps for classroom implementation. 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 for their classroom.  At the conclusion of each course teachers will receive a certificate of completion, documenting earned credit hours.  View our Course Menu now to find the right course for your teachers!

A Focus on Implementation

Our courses are designed by experienced educators and are built to provide clear guidance in a highly-structured format designed for classroom application.

Learn More

All Model Teaching courses are built with classroom implementation in mind.  Our experienced instructors are all certified teachers with years of in-classroom experience.  Our instructors start by introducing teachers to a new strategy, then take them step-by-step through the process of implementation as they build a custom plan for their own students.   In addition to this, teachers will also be provided with pre-built templates and tools to use in planning lessons as well as worksheets, graphic organizers, and sample materials to use with their students.

Feedback Centered Around Proficiency

Our instructors provide guidance, feedback and support throughout the process.  Modeled after in-person workshops and planning sessions, teachers receive personalized feedback on their developed plan of action and support after they have implemented it.

Learn More

All Model Teaching instructors are experienced, state-certified educators with years of in-classroom experience who specialize in their area of instruction.  Our instructors evaluate course progress in real-time, provide a comprehensive evaluation of all course submissions, as well as post-implementation support through written feedback.  Our instructors will reach out to teachers following implementation of the new course ideas in their own classroom, and provide support and coaching where needed.  Teachers may reach out to their instructor at any time as they progress through the course(s) using our built-in messaging system.  Administrator evaluation rubrics are also provided with each course, for optional in-class observation from school leadership.

Highly Structured Courses Designed For Immediate Classroom Application

Our Courses Take Teachers Through A Process of Concept Mastery, Planning & Feedback Leading Them To a Full Strategy for Implementation Into Their Own Classroom

Most Professional Development today focuses on teaching concepts and theories important to education without providing clear guidance on how to actually apply these new ideas to a real-world classroom.  Our courses move beyond this approach and provide a structured process that combines learning, application, & tools to produce teaching excellence.

Our standardized course structure optimizes the quality of the learning experience by allowing teachers to not only master the concepts behind new strategies, but importantly how to apply these strategies with their own students.  Using a step-by-step approach, teachers are provided with training, coaching, planning tools, and all resources needed to implement a clear plan-of-action in their classroom.

Teachers Follow This Workflow As They Progress Through The Course:

STEP 1

Demonstration & Mastery

Teachers are walked through the theory behind and steps needed to implement the new strategy in their classroom.  Teachers participate in high-quality video presentations, virtual discussion boards and complete content-aligned activities.

STEP 2

Planning & Tools

As they progress through the course, teachers build a personalized plan of action, ready for use in their classroom, using pre-built tools, step-by-step lesson planning templates, graphic organizers, and worksheets.

STEP 3

Feedback

Our instructors provide feedback on activities and teacher-developed action plans to ensure mastery of the key concepts and effective implementation of their new plan.

STEP 4

Implementation

Along with their action plan, teachers will have the tools and resources needed to implement the new strategy.  Our instructors provide follow up support as well as supply effectiveness rubrics for in-classroom observation from administrators.

Evaluation Support Included With Each Course:

During The Training: Throughout each training, our instructors will evaluate completed assignments and activities and provide coaching and support.

After The Training: At the conclusion of the course, teachers will submit their final action plan.  Our instructors review these action plans and provide feedback and support on how well they have mastered the key concepts.

As teachers work through the courses, we evaluate, provide feedback, & assign completion certificates and/or microcredentials.

Manage or Monitor Your Own Teachers’ Learning Plan

The reading behavior checklist is so valuable! I work at a very small private school and we haven’t utilized anything like this when thinking about our reading instruction. I will definitely be sharing this with my administrator!

I want to print out the resources in this course. They are excellent and I think having them in hand/in a notebook to access as I learn will be helpful.
