Leaders “Lunch, Learn, & Collaborate” Discussions for

This ongoing series of online discussions will provide building-level and district leaders with an opportunity to problem solve and deepen their understanding of designing a learning community that provides every learner with the Ideal Learning Experience.

The format of our sessions usually include a short presentation on a pre-determined topic followed by a Q & A session. Participants define which topics they want/need to address most, what discussion formats will help them problem solve, reflect, and learn, and what resources they would like to focus on for their book-talk discussions.

Contact hour certificates will be provided when requested.

Contact Linda Laughlin at [email protected] if you have any questions.


Consortium/Induction Training

An August day (TBD) followed by monthly webinar check-ins (1 hour after school sessions) throughout the school year. Register Here  **An additional charge is required for the purchase of the resource used.

Monthly (One Hour) Follow-Up  Sessions are determined by the group at their August session.

New hires/learning facilitators to the profession, or new to designing and implementing a standards-based approach, are encouraged to join us for this learning experience. We will start with one full day of online, synchronous training in the summer, followed by monthly synchronous, after-school, (1 hour) webinar sessions. The intent will be to build an understanding of a variety of topics such as: vision, mission, building a culture of voice & choice and procedural transparency, implementing learning goals/learning progressions, designing instruction, etc. We will use Bea McGarvey’s  MCL Shifting the Mindset Learning Path Series as a resource.
Outcomes: Participants will understand:

how a culture of voice and choice and growth mindset can be developed within their classrooms.
• the Mass Customized Learning Vision and how to develop a shared classroom vision with their learners.
• the role of the Guiding Principles and how to identify structures that support a customized learning environment.
• the 3 parts of the curriculum of learning progressions (content, habits of mind, complex reasoning).
• instructional design by writing a lesson that appropriately uses the 3 parts of the curriculum/learning progression model.
• how to unpack and track learner progress on learning goals.


Skilled Leadership

Format: Facilitated discussions focused on Bea McGarvey’s  MCL Skilled Leadership Learning Path** with a cohort of district, building-level & teacher leaders. Once a cohort signs up, we will collectively define the format in which we will work. This will include a combination of synchronous and asynchronous sessions. **An additional charge required for the purchase of the resource used.

Suggested Audience*: District & Building-level administrators and Teacher/Learning Facilitator Leaders

Implementing Learning Progressions
