Your District is Unique! Your size, your location, your budget, and your goals are important factors for us to understand. So first, we listen and learn from you. Once we understand your needs, we share support options that have been successful. These range from implementation support workshops, to sessions on major reform efforts including the Common Core and NGSS. Next, we design the implementation plan, with you, that meets your specific goals. Finally, our Support Team will continue to be your partner assessing your ongoing needs and ensuring success. To begin designing your plan today, contact Liz Pabon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As educators you juggle more things than most people realize... time constraints, administration mandates, parental concerns, evaluations, high stake exams and oh yes... educating. We realize that implementing a new curriculum with a new instructional approach requires additional time and focus. We’re here to ensure your implementation experience is manageable and rewarding. Our Face-to-Face Workshops foster a supportive learning environment. The goal will be to let you experience the power of student learning with a project-based approach. Whether you are participating in our Getting Started Workshop or one of our Follow-Up Sessions, you will have joined a learning community that enriches and deeply impacts your teaching and students’ success. To learn more about our instructional workshops, contact Kelly Angelo at email@example.com.
You’re not alone! Having support services to help you address your immediate needs is important. Whether or not you have attended a workshop, you will have immediate access to our Implementation Specialist Team. This can be one-on-one time with an Implementation Specialist, set-up around your schedule, or it can be group-time, set-up around a planning period. In short, you can use email, phone and/or skype to quickly address any implementation concerns, questions and ideas. We’re your partner, we’re here to help! To join our Support Community, contact Kelly Angelo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a teacher, having flexible assessment options is a big time saver.

In addition, you can create tests based upon your state standards. To get information on how to get this item, please Lindsey Salerno at email@example.com.
CyberPD Support Site
We realize that some schools do not always have the flexibility to accommodate everyone with Professional Development. They may not be able to offer release time and some teachers may be hired late in the year. Our Project-Based Inquiry Science™ CyberPD website is a great solution to help address all your Professional Development needs. The site is designed to provide teachers with Professional Development anywhere and at any time, and has a variety of comprehensive online tools to support every step of your implementation of PBIS. This includes instructional videos both generic to Project-Based Inquiry Science® and unit specific, interactive Teacher’s Planning Guides for each unit, and Content and Pedagogical Support Materials for each unit. You can also access preparation materials for each unit, each Learning Set in the unit, and each section in the Learning Set. These preparation materials consist of Unit, Learning Set, Section Overviews, and Correlations to the NGSS Framework and CCSS ELA. Another important feature to the Project-Based Inquiry Science™ CyberPD system is the specific supports associated with each page of the Student Edition simulating the “wrap-around” print of a Teacher’s Guide. http://www.pbiscyberpd.org/
As a teacher, you face many demands that include ensuring that your classroom instruction is addressing specific standards or preparing your students for high stake exams. As a time saver, our demonstration videos substitute the need for teachers to demonstrate designated “teacher demonstrations” to their students. This is also a useful tool that will allow you to show the demo multiple times to your students pointing out significant learning moments. To get information on how to access these videos, please contact Kelly Angelo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We realize that implementing a new curriculum with a new instructional approach requires additional time and focus. We’re here to ensure that your implementation experience is both manageable and rewarding.

Some of the topics include: Understanding the purpose of Launcher Units, how to address Pacing, and the importance of utilizing and managing the Project Board with students.

As a Science teacher you may not always have much time between classes to set up your equipment, and having a quick video guide on-hand can be a huge time saver.
