Expert Literacy Support
The Educator Collaborative is an inclusive organization which affirms, celebrates, and includes in our instruction a myriad of global experiences and identities, including those of transgender, LGBTQ+, Black, Indigenous, Latino/a/x, Asian, Asian American, Pacific Islander, Muslim, Jewish, disabled, neurodivergent, and other persons. Our consultants, book selections, and professional development will not censor these or other identities.
The Educator Collaborative provides K-12 literacy professional development to schools across the United States and around the world. We provide expert support in areas like writing workshop, reading workshop, balanced literacy, anti-bias education, multilingual pedagogy, digital literacy, and standards integration.
Whether you are seeking yearlong literacy consulting and staff development for your school as it moves toward independent reading practices; on-site summer institutes to engage your colleagues in workshop instruction; a professional development day training on writing instruction; or online professional development resources to deepen your own pedagogy and content—we have the experience, passion, research-based practices, and engaging literacy consultants to support your professional growth.
Please feel free to contact us to talk more about how we can support you and your district's journey.
New York State Educators: We are an Approved CTLE (Continuing Teacher and Leader Education) Sponsor.
We feel the most at home in classrooms, with your colleagues and kiddos. We provide in-school, mutli-day, long term professional development partnerships.
To promote educator’s growth and practice, while developing an atmosphere of trust and collaboration, our in-school models are built on research and best-practices in professional learning. A focus on developing a learning community within the school is paramount, created through teaming, inquiry, and feedback. Consultants work closely with leaders and other stakeholders to design a series of learning days that will move your school’s goals to your school’s growth.
We provide keynotes, break out sessions, full day workshops, and multi-day institutes, for organizations, conferences, conventions and schools.
Our full day workshops, like all of our work, provide a research-based balanced of theory and practice. We involve participants in the study and content and pedagogy, using real- classroom examples, work, and texts. Educators leave workshops with TheEdCollab feeling inspired—and ready—to incorporate new methods and practices into their teaching, coaching, or leadership.
Access is critical. So we provide free and low cost ways to learn with us from anywhere, at anytime.
Our high quality online offerings bring experts in our field to educators and schools regardless of location.
Self-Assessment is the Most Critical Learning
Our adult learning model, based on decades of research on educator development, is centered around the belief that educators grow through critical self-reflection.
