Focused Follow-up Workshops
To support professional growth in the Responsive Classroom approach after in-depth Responsive Classroom training, on-site coaches offer follow-up meetings and workshops tailored to individual schools' needs, as well as standard workshops.
On-site follow-up professional meetings and workshops are designed to meet the specified needs of a school and in response to long-range plans for school growth. Consulting teachers plan the professional-development experience with administrators, selecting from a list of standard shorter workshops or tailoring a mini-workshop or meeting in response to a particular issue or need. They can be presented at staff meetings, after-school, early-release, and professional-development-day workshops.
