New This Fall!

AAC Virtual Book Study Sessions

AAC resources are a great way to engage in professional conversations with colleagues. But why use an AAC resource for a book study when there are so many other books on the market?

 

  • We understand teaching in Alberta! You won’t have to  sort through terms and practices that belong in another educational system. 
  • We know your classrooms are diverse! These resources are full of practical ideas to help all students experience success.
  • We know that your time is limited! Take these ideas back to your classrooms, try them out, reflect on the impact for students, and come back to the meetings and share your insights.
  • We know that professional learning budgets are tight! We don’t pay an external publisher, which means we can offer our members significant discounts.

We’re pretty confident that everyone will find something in these AAC resources to challenge their thinking. And that’s what we need to do in order to make a difference for student learning.
