SUMMER WORKSHOPS

Chicago, IL

Join us in Chicago this summer for a series of workshops that will give participants the opportunity to focus on putting the Framework to work as the centerpiece of learning.

When Charlotte Danielson first published the Framework for Teaching in 1996, she put her phone number in the back of the book. She began getting calls as soon as the first copies were mailed. The demand was more than she could meet, so she pulled together a group of colleagues and designed learning experiences for adults that could be delivered across the country. This is how the Danielson Group and the Framework workshops were born. 

Our workshops and institutes provide opportunities for practitioners to engage as learners with their colleagues and other peers from across the country and the world. We view these offerings as a chance to build knowledge and skill and as a first step toward realizing the value of the Framework to your professional growth and its potential to transform professional learning in your system. 

Any of our workshops or institutes can be tailored to your needs and delivered locally as part of our on-site support.
