Chronicles of Effective Teaching
Professional Development Workshop Series
Chronicles of Effective Teaching is a series of customized professional learning workshops and courses that help bridge the gap between students’ current performance and their academic potential. Each workshop can stand independently or be a combined to create a professional learning plan.
Our Co-teaching Matrix© is an integral part of our LAVOULLE GROUP Educational Services. The Co-Teaching Matrix is designed to create successful implementation and sustainability of co-teaching.
Moving from compliance to effective instruction, the Co-Teaching Matrix © provides support for both general and special education teachers. This series teaches the preferred co-teaching models that reduce student teacher ratio and follows the Standards Based Classroom Framework.
Engaging both the general education and the special education teacher in a dialog about instruction within a safe environment. Participants learn to create standards-based lessons using preferred co-teaching approaches.
A team of general education and special education consultants conduct sessions that support teachers as they:
engage students in learning standards-based instructional activities;
learn content and its connection to teaching;
integrate hands-on and real-life experiences while integrating the best practices of effective co-teaching; and
demonstrate strategies for engaging students in acquiring standards-based reading and literature.
Customized support in mathematics, science, social studies and/or English. Content workshops incorporate real-life experiences along with integrating effective co-teaching approaches.
Sufficient co-planning is essential to the development of effective lesson plans that increase academic performance. We support teachers with planning designs and model effective co-planning.
