What you need, when you need it.

We’re teachers at heart, and we love working with our clients. And, because we work with our clients to meet their goals, our projects are as individualized as the people with whom we are working.

Our work – presentations, coaching, curriculum development, strategic projects – reflects the latest research, learning theory, and classroom-tested practices in the areas of instruction, classroom assessment, evaluation, and leadership.

AND, our work is completely unique because it reflects the local policies, context, practices and learning needs of each client.

Many of our clients continue to work with us long after our first collaboration. That’s because we establish relationships based on trust, familiarity with them and their unique learning context. These are the same sort of relationships our clients go on to build with their students, adult learners, schools, and school systems.

The relationships we build encourage an open environment for analysis, feedback for learning, and ongoing improvement.

Three powerful learning formats

How Should We work Together?

We look forward to planning with you. Please call us to discuss your next projects, goals, or to answer any questions.


One of our activities: 7 actions of assessment for learning

The classroom environment is constantly evolving. It’s critical that everyone who supports learning remain up-to-date with cutting-edge teaching techniques and protocols, to ensure your instruction drives the best results – for teachers and learners, of all ages.

The “7 actions of assessment for learning” guide is from our book,  Making Classroom Assessment Work and is a cornerstone of the work we do with our clients. This could easily have been titled, “7 Actions of Instruction” guide. These 7 actions have a powerful, positive impact on learning. They help fuel instruction!

Click on the link below to get an overview of these 7 actions and how you can apply them in your context – your classroom. Or, if you are in a leadership position, think about using these 7 actions to support collegial learning and, school or school system learning.
