Resources for Teachers

My Workshops and Presentations:

The slides in these presentations serve as a starting point for dialogue of workshops I have done. While they are not a complete representation of the workshop, some information and resources from the presentations may be helpful. In addition, I am editor of a professional site APLitHelp.com which features weekly posts from real teachers doing realy work with real students as well as additional resources. I strong encourage you to check out that site!
