Model Teaching courses focus on providing convenient, self-paced courses for K-12 Educators.  With this, we know that teachers have very busy schedules.  Our courses do not require long reading assignments or open-ended, low-level essays.  Rather, all lessons and activities are focused on in-classroom implementation and include short quizzes and reflections.  Reflections always include pre-completed samples to reference as well as example submissions from other teachers who have completed the course- so you will always have many examples to help you complete any reflections quickly.  We build our courses to reinforce the important concepts we are teaching through meaningful activities that can be completed quickly while still meeting the requirements of state and district standards for continuing education.

We estimate course length based on an assessment of how long it would take to complete the course in a live workshop.  However, most teachers can complete the courses much more quickly online.  Of note, you will still earn your full PD hours for every course, even if you complete your course more quickly than the courses’ estimated completion time.

Yes, absolutely.  Our courses do not require access to a classroom or students to complete.  However, if you ever return to the classroom you will have a broad collection of resources and tools to put your new training into practice- if you wish.
