    Your Community Resources Education Specialists are busy planning another exciting week packed with activities addressing the new common core standards, literacy standards, college to career standards, and 21st Century skills.

    Here’s what some participants had to say about last year’s workshop:

    "This workshop is excellent. I've lived in Toledo for 27 years and I am amazed how much I did not know was there!"

    "It was well organized and everything was explained thoroughly. A lot of the information can be adapted to the classroom."

    "Hands-on experience provided useful information to pass on…"

    "I was very impressed with the amount of materials that were presented during these week long workshops."



    • Light breakfast daily, lunch provided Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and dinner also provided on Wednesday
    • Parking and entrance fees
    • CEUs/Contact Hours for the entire week
    • Teaching resources and hands-on materials

    *Note: This opportunity is open to all educators, including administrators, homeschooling educators,
    and pre-service teachers. This workshop is recommended for preK-8 educators but is open
    to all grade levels.


    Venues: During the week, participants will visit The Blade, Lourdes University, Metroparks of the Toledo Area, Imagination Station, Toledo Museum of Art, WGTE Public Media, Toledo Zoo, Challenger Learning Center of Lucas County, Toledo Mud Hens 5/3 Field, Toledo Lucas County Public Library in downtown Toledo, the Valentine Theatre for tours, special programs and much more.

    Times: Times for each day will be approximately 8am-4pm with a change on Wednesday to 10:00am-7pm to provide you with a special behind-the-scenes evening dinner program at the Toledo Zoo.

    Each venue will introduce you to exciting curricula and resources to enhance K-12 teaching in science, mathematics, language arts and social studies and introduce ways to infuse the arts, technology and 21st century skills into your lessons.

    During this week, participants will:

    • Increase their awareness of area educational hands-on, standards-aligned, research-based teaching resources.
    • Feel more comfortable seeking and finding assistance with resources that help meet direct student needs including literacy strandards, core content areas, college to career readiness standards in their classroom.

    Participants wishing to take the weeklong course of Professional Development Graduate Credit for licensure renewal purposes can choose to take the course for 2 or 3 graduate credits at $200.00 per credit hr.

    The requirements for graduate credit are:
