We have compiled some of the best teaching methods and classroom practices into digital Teacher Guides, giving teachers access to practical skills, powerful teaching methodology, and rich conversations that focus on improving student achievement.
Similar to our on-site and online workshops, teachers enjoy reading our digital guides because they always find something they can use. There are handfuls of great activities and ideas--and every once in a while, nuggets of inspiration.
The methods that make up this section promote student engagement, higher-level thinking, adaptability, and mastery of reading, speaking, and writing skills. 
Let's transform our classrooms and raise student achievement by putting effective teaching practices into action.
