    Participants will:
  • Learn the critical elements of effect direct instruction for students at varying levels of support
  • Practice highly effective strategies for engaging all students in learning
  • Understand how to create and manage staff, students, and instruction
  • Create a plan for next steps in improving their classroom instruction practices
