NEW Seminar Presented By
Jeanette Moore

Teacher, Instructional Leader and Consultant

Specifically Designed for Instructional Coaches, Administrators, School Leadership Teams, Teacher Leaders, Reading Improvement Teachers, and Math Improvement Teachers Who Work with Students, Grades K-6

  • Powerful, data-driven techniques that demonstrate substantial score increases for students in less than a year, specifically when supporting struggling students
  • Highly effective systems to build more successful and more responsive intervention groups
  • School tested models of expedited results – more than one year’s growth in less than one school year
  • Proven flexible instructional structures that deliver results in any setting

A Practical, Two-Day Institute Focused on Strategies Proven to Achieve More Than a Year’s Growth in Less Time

Plan to attend as a school or district team leader, teacher leader, or a school leadership team member to increase the impact of instruction in your school and to make greater gains in achievement in less time. Learn the most effective ways to more intentionally group your students, implement stronger instructional practices, and increase student achievement. Based on a proven model of success, you will learn new ways to collect and assess data. You’ll learn how to build stronger relationships of trust with learners in your building, use the data-analysis cycle to kick-off purposeful interactions, and provide valuable feedback that will build teacher capacity while raising students’ scores. You will leave armed with the most effective teaching tools that are proven to raise test scores significantly in less time. Leave with enhanced skills in your instructional toolkit that will help you be more successful with even the most reluctant or struggling students. You will also receive proven professional development ideas that engage all staff members and have a high success rate of implementation.

Structure Your Instructional Practices for the Greatest Results and Student Achievement in Less Time

Learn proven ways to more skillfully incorporate the critical attributes of highly effective instruction with effective data analysis to ensure meaningful implementation, teacher growth and increased student learning. You’ll learn practical, systematic ways to build teacher instructional expertise working with struggling students as well as those who are high achieving. Strengthen your skills in working with both novice and veteran teachers on your building team(s) and gain high leverage ideas for conducting motivating and engaging professional development opportunities through the use of data-driven practices. During these intensive two days, you’ll learn highly effective techniques and a variety of ways to analyze data along with instructional practices, which can also translate to powerful professional development opportunities that can have a major impact on both the instructional skills of your teachers and the achievement of your students in grades K-6.

A Message from Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

As educators, we often rely on data-driven successes in order to move our instruction forward, or sometimes, to change our entire instructional direction. Tying data together with meaningful instruction requires a deep analysis of what is being instructed and knowing the standard benchmarks our students need to meet. We do all of this while under constant scrutiny and a great amount of pressure.

These are challenges I can relate to and the reason why I created the model of success for increasing student achievement in less time that has now been tested and proven in schools. I want to share with you the practical strategies and tools proven to significantly increase achievement with all students, especially those who struggle. In this seminar, I will provide you with numerous techniques for working through data and producing lessons that enhance students’ learning, lifting their scores, and ultimately, changing the overall numbers for your building, and even district.

During this intensive two-day institute, I will share with you my best, proven methods for targeting what is the most beneficial for students – specifically in reading and math. I will help you engage in more meaningful interactions when working side-by-side in the trenches with colleagues, as you dissect data and design lesson plans that will lift scores. You will learn to plan strategically and impactfully, so students scores will rise in a shorter amount of time than your building or district has normally seen.

Please join me and your colleagues, for two fast-paced invigorating days devoted to making increases in your reading and math scores, in a shorter amount of time than you normally plan for. One’s year’s gains does not have to happen in one year! You will leave this institute excited and equipped with innovative approaches and new ideas to enhance student learning and raise scores as well.

Dr. Jeanette Moore
