What our professional learners say

Elizabeth Wellenstein

Reading Specialist, Madison Metropolitan School District

“You will leave this workshop with an abundance of ideas about how to incorporate meaningful discussion into your curriculum. [I learned] more effective ways to involve discussion in the classroom aside from whole-class discussions – while these have a place/purpose, I really feel I have a bank of options I can pull from that can best match my learning goals for my students. I also have a better sense of how to assess and whether that means quick feedback or something more substantive. ”

Carla Cariño

Teacher, Denver Public Schools

The Discussion Project helped me evolve my use of classroom discussion strategies in ways that are more equitable and engaging for students. The training also modeled a variety of uses for discussion ranging from quick check ins to longer, more in depth discussion practices. The benefits of discussion in high school classrooms lead to benefits of other skills like reading, writing, presenting, contributions to the classroom community and more. Thank you for leading this important work for high school teachers.”
