Over the past several years quite a few presentations have been developed and presented numerous times. They include workshops for educators and workshops for students. They have been presented in classrooms and after school situations as well. There are several described in this flier.
3) What if I have an idea for teaching but none of your specific presentations fit the bill?
Great question! We are prepared to work on any request made. We have many resources to draw on and any new idea is more than welcomed. If you can think of a topic that would make your teaching better just let us know.
4) Is there a cost for these workshops and presentations?
