First of all I want to say thank you for your membership program. After 13 years of teaching, I'm giving myself over entirely to the workshop model, following along like an Amanda Werner-lite this first year.... with the hope of taking off my training wheels as I become more comfortable with this seismic shift in my teaching. And in just the few weeks we've been back, my classroom has absolutely transformed. Seriously. I'm happier, the kids are happier, the *vibe* is happier... and I'm loving it. I've been able to actually talk to my students rather than constantly assessing them. They've become real live humans again rather than just numbers I have to move. I'm loving it, and so are they.
I just wanted to take a quick moment to say thank you! What you are doing is changing my life! I have never been more satisfied with a product! As school quickly approaches, I feel more confident that I will be able to spend more time getting to know my students and less time doing the ELA shuffle (Waiting until the weekend, getting overwhelmed, and going to TPT). I can't wait to launch this Workshop! THANK YOU!
Seeing how you design your units has helped me be comfortable with finding my teaching style and writing plans that are simple, manageable while still containing standards. I really enjoy your Facebook live videos where you talk about writing and other ELA related strategies. You have a down to earth delivery that I connect with. Thank you for being relevant and compassionate. Your support for new teachers is invaluable. Thank you!
Wow! I just finished Module 1 and LOVE how you have organized this course! My plan for the rest of this week is to complete the Five Simple To-Dos. What a great way to ground my thinking related to Workshop!
I also want to let you know how much this puts my mind at ease related to my planning for next year. As a Humanities teacher I often struggle to bring the ELA and Social Studies content and skills together. After completing Module 1 I feel much better about this.
I like how complete and well organized your writing workshop units are. I love your enthusiasm and passion for helping teachers. I know I need it! So, thank you and continue doing the amazing things you are doing!
Your resources are amazing! I am blown away by all your great work - it is clean, easy to follow, and thorough.
