Resources for Site-based Study

Purpose

To help schools and districts fully implement Developmental Designs approach, we provide resources designed for  site-based professional development.

Process

Some resources for site-based professional development:

  • Advisory resources: Four publications providing full-support for implementing  Developmental Designs advisory meeting formats, the Circle of Power and Respect and Activity Plus. Learn more.
  • Behaivor management resources: Two publications guiding educators through a comprehensive approach to classroom discipline. Learn more.
  • School Development Assessment Program: a data-gathering formative-assessment approach to full implementation of Developmental Designs practices
  • Free online resources in Educator Help, geared to the middle level classroom: greetings, games, sharing ideas, acknowledgments, articles, and tools for practical implementation support

With these resources, educators can extend their implementation of the practices by independent reading, collaborations and studies with colleagues, self-assessments, and data-gathering.

Consulting Teachers

You can use Developmental Designs consultants to support your site-based study. Consulting teachers have all successfully used in their own classrooms the strategies they teach and demonstrate.  They have been extensively trained and are nationally certified to facilitate Developmental Designs workshops, and are skilled in helping educators reach their goals.
