Classroom Instruction That Works
Authorized Facilitator Training

June 19-23, 2017

Attend our Classroom Instruction That Works (CITW) workshop and authorized facilitator training to learn effective research-based instructional strategies and methods to help other teachers learn and implement these strategies in their classrooms. 

The first three days of this training will solidify your understanding of the nine CITW categories of instructional strategies and an instructional planning framework that maximizes the strategies' effectiveness. The final two days will prepare you to become an authorized facilitator of CITW workshops in your own district or region. During these two days you will:

  • Deepen your understanding of the research-based instructional strategies and associated activities
  • Learn how to assist teachers in applying the instructional strategies to lesson design  
  • Discuss how to lead professional development and practice the delivery of a lesson
  • Participate in quality assurance steps necessary to become an authorized facilitator of McREL's Classroom Instruction That Works workshop

Upon successful completion of this training you will be authorized to deliver Classroom Instruction That Works workshops to educators in your district or service area for a period of one year (annual re-licensing available). Your organization will retain 100 percent of any tuition or fees you charge for the trainings that you deliver during the year.

Who Should Attend?

District professional development staff, regional education service agency trainers, professional association trainers, and others would like to deliver Classroom Instruction That Works workshops in their service area.


$3,000 per person. Materials as well as beverages, lunch, and morning/afternoon snacks provided. This fee includes the three-day Classroom Instruction That Works workshop, the two-day facilitator training, a CITW workshop facilitator’s guide, and authorization to present unlimited trainings within your district or service area for a period of one year. Annual re-licensing is required in order to retain permission to provide training.

NOTE: If you have previously taken the 3-day CITW Professional Development workshop and would like to now take only the 2-day training to become an authorized facilitator, please contact Madonna Shafer for more information.
