Course description



Creating an environment that is both supportive and positive for students as well as the teacher does not happen by chance. Just grouping four students at a table in no way ensures a cooperative group.


The SET (students, environment, & teacher) model will be explored and tools shared that will aid educators in developing a community of learning environment in classrooms at any grade level.


Modules include:

  • Community of Learning: An Introduction
  • The Environment
  • Setting & Developing Norms of Cooperative Learning
  • The First Two Weeks
  • Planning that Supports a Community of Learning Environment
  • Students Taking Ownership
  • Sample Activities that Promote Collaboration
  • What About Assessment?
  • Next Steps

Basic + and Custom level participants will have the opportunity to work with Tammy in live support sessions.

PD Hours:

Upon successful completion of the Basic course, participants will get a certificate for 9 hours of PD credit.

Upon successful completion of the Basic+ course, participants will get a certificate for 15 hours of PD credit.

PD credit hours will be determined by the local district/school for the Custom course.

Meet Your Instructor

An educator since 1979, Tammy L. Jones has worked with students from first grade through college. Currently, Tammy is consulting with individual school districts in training teachers on strategies for making content accessible to all learners.

Writing integrations as well as literacy connections are foundational in everything Tammy does. Tammy also works with teachers on effective techniques for being successful in the classroom. As a classroom teacher Tammy’s goal was that all students understand and appreciate the content they were studying; that they could read it, write it, explore it, and communicate it with confidence; and that they would be able to use the content as they need to in their lives.

Tammy believes that logical reasoning, followed by a well-reasoned presentation of results, is central to the process of learning, and that this learning happens most effectively in a cooperative, student-centered classroom. Tammy believes that learning is experiential and in her current consulting work creates and shares engaging and effective educational experiences.
