Finally an easy answer to the question...


How am I going to survive this insane school year!?!? 

 

SHOW ME THE ANSWER!

Maybe these last few months have got you thinking...

"Everyone is so unclear right now!"

 

 

“I don't even know where to begin...”

 

 

“I don't know how to use the curriculum I have under these current conditions.”

 

 

“I really don’t know how I'm going to do this!”

 

 

“I’m extremely overwhelmed with everything I have to worry about right now.”

 

“I'm afraid my students will be unmotivated
and disengaged.” 

 

“I have no clue how to continue reading and writing workshop from a distance!” 

 

 

 

 

You are not alone.

What if I told you it was possible to...

  • Feel confident and prepared for this school year, no matter what your school or district decides to do. 



  • Know exactly how to continue reading and writing workshop seamlessly through a distance learning or hybrid model.


  • Receive all the digital teaching tools you need to create a systematic plan for the school year via hybrid or distance learning!

MEET AMANDA WERNER

ENGLISH TEACHER, ENTREPRENEUR, WRITER & ADVOCATE FOR TEACHERS

 

Amanda has been teaching for 13 years in grades 3rd-8th. She started an online business selling digital curriculum 8 years ago when her husband was doing his post-doc and she was working at a 4-day a week charter school. She was bored...so she thought, why not make resources for teachers? Little did she know that this decision would change the trajectory of her life. 

When COVID-19 hit, Amanda decided to resign from her 8th grade English teaching position. She realized she couldn't teach from a distance, take care of her family and run a business all at the same time. This was an incredibly difficult decision. But, she realized that should couldn't do it all, it just wasn't viable. 

Today, Amanda is fully dedicated to supporting teachers around the world through these unprecedented times. 

She has found the most success using the reading and writing workshop. This model of teaching allows for a simple, predictable life for teachers. It is also highly engaging for students.

The curriculum that Amanda has been writing these past 8 years is exactly what teachers need right now. Amanda's mission is to spread the word about Workshop Teacher Membership...

"My classroom has absolutely transformed.
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."

PREVIEW COURSE

"Shifting into distance learning has been a breeze
Things have been going very quickly this year, and I haven't had a chance to properly thank you for all your awesome curriculum! Shifting into distance learning has been a breeze because I have everything I need to post online for our op-ed argumentative writing work. So, thank you so much for everything. I am so happy that I was able to learn a whole new method of teaching and having the tools from you made it possible! "

Not a problem! You can cancel at any time. However, because the resources provided are digital and will be delivered immediately after purchase, there are no refunds provided. So, if you aren’t happy with the resources or membership, make sure you cancel before your membership renews the following month/year.

You’ll receive curriculum the last day of each month! If you'd like all the curriculum for the entire year, join yearly membership here. 

Yes, the curriculum units will follow the 6-8th Grade English Common Core Standards AND Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills.

Some grammar will be covered. Information about how to use mentor sentences and how to confer with students about grammar topics will be discussed during live Q&A sessions. Also, the Grammar and Mechanics Unit is released the end of April. 

The curriculum is definitely adaptable to different grade levels. You can always try it out for a month, see how easy it is to adapt to your grade level and decide if you want to continue or cancel the next month! It’s important for you to do what is best for you and your students.

The beautiful thing about workshop is that it’s adaptable based on the books you recommend students read and the skills you cover in your mini lessons. This membership includes monthly collaboration sessions where we can discuss how to make the units work for multiple grade levels!

I think workshop is THE BEST program for gifted students and students who struggle. Here’s why…the books you put into the hands of students and the mini lessons (reading and writing) you teach can be adapted based on the level of students you have in front of you. Also, if you join we can collaborate during our monthly sessions about how to meet the variety of student needs.

"I have noticed so many changes related to my quality of life at school!
I feel confident in what I am doing each day, the most confident I have ever felt. I do not have as much work to do at home. Most importantly, I feel a deeper connection with all my students (71 of them) and can say I know them as writers and readers, and it's only the first quarter!"
