Our district just participated in our first Learning A-Z professional development opportunity, focused on Raz-Plus. I was thoroughly impressed with not only the depth of knowledge of the presenter, but also with the way she focused on how to use the resource to support best teaching practices in the classroom. Her extensive knowledge in literacy instruction inspired our teachers to use Raz-Plus in a more focused and intentional way.

We have provided Reading A-Z for our teachers for many years, but it was not until we began our partnership with the Learning A-Z professional development team that our usage and impact on students really took off. The partnership with the professional development team has ensured that our district gets just what it needs. They are responsive and ensure our teachers get just what they need, and are always listening to our teachers' feedback and pushing to help make our trainings better.

Without exception, each Learning A-Z professional development opportunity in which I have participated has modeled effective instructional practices with the Learning A-Z tools. Teachers return to their classrooms excited to use the books, interactive activities, and data reports to positively impact their instruction and their students.
