WE impact YOU...
We desire to build an online community of teachers who are focused on a targeted literacy instructional practice goal that will make the biggest impact on student learning. We support teachers as they dive deeper into a specific "area of practice" in their classrooms; in turn building long-term teacher capacity and addressing the unique needs of teachers and their students. We strongly believe that the most valuable resource that all teachers have is each other. With our highly effective instructional coach support when you need it most, engaging grade level communities across multiple schools, deep dive focus small groups, and custom designed resources; we can trigger a ripple effect of highly effective instruction across a team, a building, and a district. Ripples Impact Community will impact YOU, just as you will impact others. Our partnership will create this ripple effect...just like a stone that has been tossed into the water. Everything we think, say, and do radiates to those around us professionally.
Plant a seed and watch it grow... It starts with YOU! You are a part of the ripple effect!
Place a Custom Literacy Resource Order
All teachers who join our Ripple Impact Community can request custom resources to be made anytime. Maybe you see a resource that we have already created, but would like to make a few changes to match your curricular standards & goals. Maybe you see a resource for lower grade levels that you would like us to modify for upper grade levels, and vice versa. Maybe you have an unique idea for a tool your students can use, but need help in designing it. Let our Custom Resource Designer create something special for you!
1 modification: FREE plus regular price of item
2-5 modifications: $5 each modification plus regular price of item
Complete New Design: $35/hr plus regular price of the item (Ask for a Quote)
If you don't need a custom order made, you can also purchase our resources the way they come. We have several resources for reading and writing as ready to go. We currently have 7 categories of resources:
1. Conferring resources
2. Text Band resources
3. Reading Strategies resources
4. Writing Strategies resources
5. Mentor Text Planning Sticky Notes resources
6. Partnerships & Small Group resources
7. Unit of Study Planning resources
How do the extra credits work for teachers?
We would like to show our teachers, who are part of the Ripple Impact Community, how much we value and appreciate the work they do for children and the work they put in to support each other inside the community. We don't want to only show our appreciate during Teacher Appreciation Week, but ALL YEAR LONG! And that's where the Extra Credits come in.
Each Extra Credit equals $1 (except when earning extra credits for purchasing teacher resources).
You can use your extra credits towards:
* Units of Study Grade Level Communities
* Deep Dive Focus Communities
* Purchasing Teacher Resources
