Professional Development for Writing Instruction
We provide top-notch professional development for writing instruction that helps educators enhance their skills and knowledge to foster better writing outcomes for their students.
Our programs are tailored to meet your needs and ensure success.
Remote and in-person professional development training can be customized to meet the needs of your teachers and students.
If you don’t have EDCON’s writing program, we can still help. An expert writing instructor will review your ELA curriculum and develop an excellent training that will give your teachers skills and tools to advance writing proficiency.
In-person trainings can consist of program orientations, demo lessons with/without students, and debriefs with teachers. Please contact us for pricing if you’re considering an in-person training or need a customized training using your own ELA curriculum. Otherwise, a remote training for EDCON’s writing program is $1,500, which can be 1-2 hours.
