Tools for Classroom 
Instruction That Works

Raising Achievement by Solving

Problems of Practice

with Dr. Thomas Dewing

Classroom Instruction That Works has long been considered the “gold standard” of education research. But the question for educators has always been how:  How do I put this research to work today, in a way that’s meaningful for me and my students? This workshop focuses on the how—in the form of classroom-ready tools—that educators need to turn the promise of the research into everyday practice.

During this intensive one-day session, Dr. Thomas Dewing will

  • Provide a “primer” on the evolution of the Classroom Instruction That Works research.
  • Focus in on key “problems of practice” that prevent teachers from realizing the benefits of the research—and that are consistent causes of student underachievement.
  • Present a set of practical, ready-to use tools that address these problems of practice.
  • Encourage participants to identify additional problems of practice that they want to address.
  • Help participants select and implement specific tools that will make the greatest difference in their own classrooms/schools.

Using tools from the new Tools for Classroom Instruction That Works,
Dr. Dewing will show you how to address your problems of practice at every grade level and in every classroom.
