On Thursday, Feb. 21 we are having an informal  free seminar to both educate you and to highlight a few of our business partners. You are welcome to come but we ask for a maximum of three per school. There is room for only 18 attendees so let me know quickly. It is fine if you just want to attend certain of these sessions but make that clear. Lunch and coffee service will be provided you. Parking is free and an  easy “in and out”. This will be at our office at 13850 Ballantyne Corporate Place, Suite 500, in Charlotte.

The Secret to Successful Social Studies

Struggling with implementing the Common Core Standards? Look no further! In this minds-on, hands-on session, participants will be introduced to a powerful, yet practical teaching method that infuses critical and creative thinking, reading and writing in the content area, and research and test preparation into daily instruction.  Our method is tried and true and  works for all levels of students and all areas of the Social Studies!  Several activities and lessons will be shared and participants will walk away with lots of creative ideas!
