PD2Go - Professional Development to Go

PD2Go is our newest feature at Choice Literacy, bringing together favorite videos for professional development with the tools to use them with colleagues.  Each video includes a workshop guide with a concise description of the video, related Common Core Standards, key topics, and sample discussion questions. Below the player, select the "Workshop Guide" which details how to use the video in a professional development setting, with related readings and video viewing templates provided to enhance the learning experience. A transcript is provided when appropriate -- just click on the "Transcript" icon.

PD2Go is our master class in professional development for literacy leaders -- just reading through the workshop guides will give you lots of ideas for structuring discussions, focusing events, and guiding colleagues to better practice. We've created a separate search engine just for PD2Go, to help you quickly find what you need by grade, presenter, or topic. We hope you enjoy using PD2Go as much as we enjoyed putting it together for you.
