Putting Professional Development Into Practice With Foundations A-Z

Bridging the Gap Between Lesson and Implementation

Professional development is a vital part of the educational process, as it exposes educators to new ways of instruction, offers research-based best practices, and provides the confidence to teach new concepts. Though this is the goal of professional development, many educators state that when it comes to practical application, professional development may miss the mark. This is why we created Foundations A-Z, a comprehensive foundational skills instruction solution that guides teachers through each stage of their instructional journey with practical examples and applications for their classrooms.

In addition to providing embedded professional development, this helpful solution takes things a step further with its “Put Into Practice” videos. While its “Learn From the Experts” videos provide an overview of pedagogy, “Put into Practice” videos help educators put these steps into practice with practical strategies to apply immediately in their classroom instruction. As you consider the efficacy of your current professional development content, take a look at the samples below of the “Put Into Practice” videos you will find in Foundations A-Z to see how much of a game-changer it can be.
