GYSTC has developed sessions over the years to address the needs of schools in our region that include the following topics: Vocabulary, formative Assessment, Writing in Science, Literacy, Inquire-Based Instruction, Project Based Learning, or STEM. These sessions can be delivered in a format that best meets the needs of your school such as planning periods, after school, or on professional learning days.
With few exceptions, all of the materials, resources, and services listed are available at no cost to schools and teachers from membership systems. For additional information, please contact the Regional Coordinator, Cathy Fontenot, at (770) 328-8530 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
