Ready Supplemental Professional Development
Ready® Courses

Our Ready professional development takes teachers beyond product orientation to show them strategies for using Ready Mathematics, Ready Reading, and Ready Writing, along with the Ready Teacher Toolbox, to support grade-level whole class instruction and meet the needs of struggling learners. Our flexible days and grouping allow us to work with you to meet multiple sets of needs in one up to 6-hour session for up to two Ready subjects (inclusive of the Ready Teacher Toolbox).

Our Ready courses address a set of common learning outcomes and are designed specifically for teachers and coaches who are new to Ready. Leaders are strongly encouraged to attend. Computer and web access is recommended for Ready Teacher Toolbox access. Our Tailored Support sessions deliver targeted outcomes unique to your needs and are adaptable for both new and returning Ready users.

Additionally, our courses and sessions can be adapted to include professional development for two Ready subjects for implementations using Ready Reading and Ready Mathematics or Ready Reading and Ready Writing. Please speak with your Educational Consultant to explore options for professional development for implementations including all three Ready subjects.
