The Adaptive Schools Foundation Seminar presents a productive, practical set of ideas and tools for developing collaborative groups in becoming effective and better equipped to resolve complex issues around student learning.


The training not only explores what makes teams effective, but how to develop skills as facilitators and informed group members in informal and formal settings, in small and large groups.


It takes participants beyond the idea of professional learning communities to the actual implementation. It describes specific ways to weave the collaborative fabric of a faculty, develop group member skills, and acquire the principles and understandings to engage in a continuous cycle of team and individual improvement.


Adaptive Schools is the "how" of professional learning communities: how to behave in groups, how to lead them, and how to facilitate them for improved leading, teaching and learning.

I Am Reading with Matt Glover

When young children interact with books before they can read conventionally, some important questions arise:
* Are they really reading or not?
* What are they doing as they look at the pages?
* What can we do to support their reading and language development?
* How can we nurture their healthy and resilient reading identities?


In this workshop, Matt will use video, classroom examples, and transcripts to provide answers to these questions. He will begin by showing you how young children's interactions with any book count as real reading and denote a precious time in their reading lives, whether or not they can read the words. When we view children as readers and nurture what they're doing before they can read conventionally, we're helping them develop healthy reading habits and identities.


Matt will share with you practical and replicable ideas for interacting with young children in ways that nudge them to think deeply and talk more about their books. You'll learn how to create classroom conditions and provide literacy opportunities that are inviting, child-centered and considerate of all young children, no matter who they are as readers or what they can do with books.

In this workshop, George will discuss the idea and characteristics of "The Innovator's Mindset" (as discussed in the book of the same title that is included in this workshop). He'll share powerful examples on why this is so crucial for all educators.


This full-day workshop is meant for leaders to help others within their organization not only accept change, but embrace it, to create better powerful leaning opportunities for our learners. It is not focused on the "how-to" of technology, but on the conversations that will help staff move forward in a way that they will be excited yet feel supported in their journey.


George's presentations are known to be emotional and humorous, all while pushing your thinking. They will definitely connect to your heart first, in a way that will last with you long after this day.
