About Challenge Network Workshops

 

Who should sign up?

  • Math, reading and writing teachers & specialists

  • Middle grades  (varies by workshop)

How do workshops work?

  •  Workshops typically cost $150 per day (6 hours).  A few workshops cost more because they are longer, require more facilitators, or include additional materials.

  •  Most workshops take place at our office – 2700 Southwest Freeway in Houston.

  • Workshops are designed around small group work, peer learning and hands-on activities.  For this reason, they are capped at 30 participants (though A+ may offer up to four sections simultaneously, serving up to 120 participants at a time.)

  • A+ can offer custom workshops at your campus or follow up with personalized, in-class coaching for teachers and instructional leaders – contact us for more information.
