Parent and Tutor Training
Parent Nights Periodically, we visit area elementary schools and demonstrate the Thinkingworks strategy menus that their children are learning in school. We demonstrate the following ThinkingWorks products, which can be used by parents at home:
Programs generally last approximately 45 minutes. The school or other sponsor pays a fee of $250 for the evening's presentation.
"A Parent's Guide to Solving the Literacy Puzzle" is an introductory overview of the current status of literacy education, literacy initiatives being used in Ohio schools, and the value of the ThinkingWorks approach. There is no charge for this 20-minute speaker bureau program.
Training for Tutors prepares tutors in the use of ReadingWorks and thinkingWorks strategies. Tutors learn how to use individual ThinkingWorks strategies and how to combine them with the guidance of a teacher to further student achievement of classroom objectives. Fee: $100 per contact hour
