Expand your toolbox:

Response cards are just one of the many helpful engagement strategies Stetson & Associates recommends during this training. Research has demonstrated that if response cards were used as an instructional tool instead of hand raising for just 30 minutes per day, each student would make more than 3,700 additional academic responses on average during the school year (Heward et al, 1996).

Training customization:

Stetson & Associates can customize every training to fit your needs and has been doing so for over 700 districts for more than 30 years.

Client impact:

In response to instructional coaching in Clear Creek ISD in Texas, Stetson received this positive feedback:

“I think my favorite part of the sessions were the classroom observations. The part I learned the most from, was the “debriefing” sessions we had as a group, following the observations. I also found the practical suggestions, like folding paper in quarters for quick structure to notes, helpful.”
