I went to your seminar in Wisconsin
with two staff members in February
and wish more of my district teachers
could have attended. I looked at your
website for another seminar in our
location, and there are none. Can you
come to our school district for
Language Arts Coordinator
We do seminars, such as the one you attended, that are open
to educators from the area, and we do seminars just for schools
and school districts. Sometimes these schools or districts open
their seminars to other educators.
To schedule a seminar, call our office toll free at 888-937-7355.
Ask for information about scheduling a seminar. We’ll help
you. Discuss possible dates and expenses.
There are three other veteran presenters besides me who conduct
the Sourcebook Seminars for Teaching Spelling and Word
Skills. Each of us lives in a different U.S. city. We all provide
Sourcebook training, but we do it our own way. However, we
all use the same format and seminar handbook to be certain the outcome is the same.
The seminar is usually the same length as the one you attended—from about 8:30 in the morning until about
3:15 in the afternoon, with approximately an hour for lunch. Yet, some districts choose a different time
arrangement, such as meeting from 8:00 am until 1:45 pm with no lunch break. The total seminar length is
the same. On occasion, the seminar for all teachers is just one-half day, and the rest of the presenter’s day is
spent training a handful of “spelling mentors” who then train your other teachers using the Tutor Me Training
In some cases, the seminar can offer “credit” for attendance. This depends upon the amount of class time, participating
credit source (such as a university), and the kind of credit that is desired.
There is nothing more effective for learning how to use the Sourcebook than to participate in a basic training
seminar. For veteran Sourcebook users, there is an extension seminar which has been immensely popular!
There’s even a seminar we do for parents!
