Structured Coverage

Our materials are meticulously structured, helping to bring clarity and depth to the teachings.

When you are teaching a segment on the Art & Craft of Teaching, for example, you can give students a pathway they can follow toward becoming excellent teachers. Our materials may help you to organize your own thinking on the subject and to identify your priorities and content needs. We provide all the necessary background so that you can focus on conveying your teaching priorities  and coaching students.

In this content example, we’ve done the tedious work to tease apart an answer to the question, “What exactly are the skills that contribute to good teaching?” We’ve organized the skills into these categories:

The Fundamentals

  1. Introduction to the Fundamentals
  2. Presence, Humility, Boundaries
  3. Personal Practice & Knowledge of the Teachings

  5. Promoting Student Safety
