Customized Professional Development

Professional development designed for educators ready to take their professional practice and leadership to the next level.

How It Works

All teachers, teams, and school leaders work to continuously improve their professional practice; a commitment that takes their leadership and careers to the next level. If professional development is on your list of needs, The Boston Group is here to help.

Our approach to professional development is to create experiences that directly align with a school’s strategic goals and deliver them in ways that involve, engage, and excite their team.

From all of our workshops, participants will walk away with specific and actionable strategies that can be directly implemented into their instructional practice.

Not only do we provide learning opportunities, but simultaneously build relationships, offer new experiences, and engage team members in ways that may not readily be available in their day-to-day schedule.

We offer a variety of workshops designed to target common problems faced by educators. Our workshops can be modified to fit the unique needs of your school.

Embracing Neurodiversity

The landscape of education is ever evolving, and with that so is the makeup of our classrooms and schools. Students come to us with varying levels of abilities in all aspects of academic and non academic endeavors. They have differentiated strengths and weaknesses. As we become more aware of the neurodiversity of our population, general education teachers have a responsibility to meet the needs of all of the learners in their classrooms. In this two-part, deep dive workshop, participants will have the opportunity to step inside the shoes of a student who has challenges with reading and listening comprehension as well as written expression; experiencing first hand, the daily struggles that many learners face. By developing empathy, and building an increasing awareness of the vast diversities of the students sitting in our classrooms, educators will leave this workshop with very specific and actionable strategies to support students in managing everyday reading, writing, and listening challenges and in developing compensatory academic independence skills.

Designing Assessment Schemes FOR Learning:

It is widely understood that Standards-based Learning (SBL) is the process of using a set of learning targets (standards) to drive teacher planning and instruction; to drive assessment of student achievement; to drive the specific, descriptive, timely feedback given to students; and to inform the grading and reporting of student achievement. Many schools who embark on an SBL journey make adaptations to best fit the needs of their respective school communities. However, most maintain the understanding that assessment schemes should inform instructional planning for individuals and groups of students, and feedback is instrumental in the improvement process. Participants will explore the importance of developing Assessment Schemes FOR Learning, and the role that feedback plays in ensuring students reach optimal levels of success.

Creating and Sustaining Schoolwide Cultures of Thinking and Learning:

The culture of the classroom teaches, and our classrooms and schools should cultivate collaborative cultures that push students to think critically and creatively and engage with concepts in authentic ways. By developing an understanding of the Eight Cultural Forces at play in our classrooms; and how careful attention to these in planning and preparation can enhance and amplify student learning in the classroom, teachers will understand how to transform their learning environments into true cultures of thinking. We will explore ways to document student thinking through the use of Thinking Maps, Thinking Routines, and Reflective Paintings; while learning about the science and research behind the use of these tools and support teachers in their journeys to amplify their instructional practice.

Universal Design For Learning (UDL):

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) uses a myriad of teaching strategies and methods to remove any and all barriers to learning. UDL makes learning accessible, giving all learners the support and challenge needed to succeed at their individual levels. This approach is motivating to students in the same ways that having a great mentor is motivating to an adult. When you think about the most successful mentors or coaches, they provide the proper foundation and preparation so that you can actively participate and engage with your work. They then foster pathways to help you further develop, all the while helping you to fill the gaps in your understanding. They are flexible, and adapt to your needs. UDL provides that same kind of flexibility in the classroom. By applying UDL principles, teachers will have the ability to effectively instruct a diverse group of learners; building in flexibility in the ways learners can access information and in the ways students can demonstrate their knowledge.

The Executive in Your Brain:

In this workshop, participants will complete an executive function self assessment in order to uncover their own areas of strength and development; illuminating the contributing factors at play in their lives. This level of understanding of one’s own executive function profile is critical to supporting students in the development of theirs. Participants will then deep dive into the 12 elements of executive function, and uncover why developing these skills in ourselves and our students is critically important to increased success in all facets of life. Next, they will uncover how the 12 elements of executive function directly impact our students; playing key roles in their successes and/or struggles. The workshop will conclude with specific and actionable strategies around each element of executive function that participants can use to develop these skills in their students and themselves.

Developing or Refining Your Mission and Vision:

Vision and mission statements provide schools and organizations with a roadmap of where they want to go and how they are going to get there. They establish clear expectations and standards for the whole community and help the team to achieve their collective and common goals. In this workshop, we will lead your team through the development and or refinement of your Vision and Mission. By first conducting a needs assessment and involving selected stakeholders in a focus group to explore pedagogical and core beliefs, we will help you to uncover the answers to the following questions: What kind of school or organization do we hope to be? What should be reflected in our vision/mission statements? What do we need to do differently to achieve this vision? And what unique opportunities or pathways do we offer? Walking your team through a variety of activities, we will refine or define your vision and mission and leave you with a clear and actionable pathway to reaching your goals.
