Welcome to the TINY WOMAN WORDSHOP, a research-based approach to language instruction for elementary classrooms. We offer workshops and interactive lessons and activities that align key concepts in language with higher order thinking, seamlessly integrate technology with curriculum and pedagogy, can be developed from grade to grade across subjects, and support and strengthen the critical thinking needed for STEM and biodiversity education.

Our interactive lessons relate reading, writing and media literacy instruction by focusing on the ‘big ideas’ in language. Using interactive board software, teachers will meet their most important AREAS OF NEED: to deliver comprehensive and critical language lessons, to make full use of classroom technology, and to integrate instructional criteria into their program.
