SPRING 2013 SCHEDULE
Each year we conduct scores of
writing workshops for teachers, supervisors, and administrators.
Workshops are held throughout the United States in convenient
locations, such as hotels, and are open to educators from the
surrounding school districts.
We take great pride in ensuring that
all of our workshops are both informative and
entertaining. Our associates (presenters) are chosen because of their
extensive knowledge of K-12 education, their outstanding teaching
ability, and their expertise in the field of writing. They also have
superb presentation and communication skills and believe
wholeheartedly in the lifelong benefits to students that result from
using the Collins Writing ProgramSM.
1986 and 2012, we conducted
over 900 open-to-the-public workshops that were attended by over
participants from 31 states. In these workshops, we ask the question,
“Compared to other workshops you have attended, how would you rate
this workshop?” We use a 1 to 10 evaluation scale, with 1
designated “not effective at all”; 5, “an average experience”; and 10,
“one of the best I’ve attended". Our evaluations have averaged
an outstanding 9.2+ over the past 24 years.
