Teacher Training


To Get Kids Thinking!

All Learning Is Connected


Louise’s programs show teachers how to integrate literacy skills in meaningful ways and how to develop students’ critical thinking skills. Think! Like Socrates and Think! Like a Writer will incorporate the three major literacy shifts of the English Language Arts Common Core State Standards: 


  1. Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction and informational texts

  2. Reading and writing grounded in evidence from text

  3. Regular practice with complex text and its academic vocabulary 


Investing in Teachers = Brighter Students


Investment in high quality professional development is the best investment a school system can make because the single most important factor in any child’s education is what his teachers know and can do. 


The extended engagement of the unique three-day Think! Like Socrates program and the one-day Think! Like a Writer program will provide deep learning for teachers and result in better thinking for students.
