SPARK workshops solicit philosophical “buy-in,” show teachers how to navigate the instructional materials and digital content, then prepare effective lessons, and provide active examples that foster best practices.
SPARK training is truly a special event: Smiles are prevalent, laughter frequent, and a special rapport occurs between participants and their trainer. Participants leave ready, willing, and able to implement SPARK effectively and maximize student outcomes.
After more than two decades of research and dissemination experiences, SPARK has learned that teacher training is an essential component and at least 12 hours of it are needed for successful implementation. SPARK strongly recommends the PREMIUM program. Alternatives should be considered only if budgetary constraints and/or hours for staff development cannot meet PREMIUM standards.
Program prices are per SPARK program (Early Childhood, K-2, 3-6, Middle School, High School, After-School, Inclusive PE, Active Classrooms) – not all programs offer all three program options.
SPARK curriculum (the “what” to teach) is required for each participant attending a SPARK training (the “how” to teach). For details on curriculum pricing click here. In addition, equipment (the “tools” to teach) are required for the training. A list of needed workshop equipment the host must provide will be provided – the site hosting the training can round up their own equipment that is needed or purchase SPARK recommended equipment.
*Up to (not to exceed) 40 participants per training program.
