Online Coursework

Teacher studying school books in class with high school kids

The TeacherReady® curriculum was designed for teachers by teachers to provide the techniques and tools that have led them to become top performers in their practice. Each lesson was designed to build specific skills and methods to help you be an effective teacher.

Master the Classroom with TeacherReady

The best teachers don’t measure success on how well they have taught. The victory is in how well their students have learned. Students flourish in engaging environments where they feel successful. The true craft of a master teacher is in capturing the mind of each student while simultaneously managing the classroom environment. We are here to make you a master of that craft. 

Through our online curriculum, we will help you:

  • Learn to manage classroom behavior
  • Communicate at all levels (with students, parents, and school administrators)
  • Help your struggling students master a concept without losing the interest of your other students
  • Create targeted learning plans that meet your school’s and state’s standards
  • Measure the right things at the right time so that you can adjust your learning plans and show your students’ progress
  • Learn and implement evidence-based instructional and intervention strategies rooted in the science of reading and receive your Florida Reading Endorsement included in your TeacherReady coursework
