Spend a day or two at a Smekens seminar, and we guarantee you will leave with innovative, best-practice literacy strategies you can use the very next day.

HANDOUTS

For every Smekens Education workshop, teachers receive a full-color handout packed with ready-to-use strategies, blackline masters, and other resources.

SECRET SITE ACCESSS

Teachers also receive lifetime access to a "secret website." This password-protected area of the Smekens website features additional resources to accompany the workshop, including videos, PowerPoint and Smartboard documents, web links, and more.

ON-SITE BOOKSTORE!

Teachers always look forward to browsing through the wide selection of professional books, picture books, and other resources available on site from The Literacy Store. As always, attendees at Smekens Education workshops will enjoy a 15% discount on all in-stock titles. For an advance look at what The Literacy Store has to offer, visit www.TheLiteracyStore.com.

PROFESSIONAL GROWTH CREDITS

Certified educators can earn professional growth credits for attending a Smekens Education workshop. All workshop attendees receive a certificate of participation for 5.5 hours of professional development for each one-day workshop. Visit our Continuing Education Credit page to learn more.

GRADUATE CREDIT

For an additional fee, attendees of any two-day workshop may apply the 11 hours of training earned toward graduate-level credit through a partnership with Midwest Teachers Institute. Graduate credit options are for non-degree credits which are designed for professional certification renewals and salary step increases. (Check with your district for approval prior to making a commitment.)
