How do workshops work?

  • Workshops typically cost $175 per day (6 hours).  A few workshops cost more because they are longer, require more facilitators, or include additional materials.
  • Unless otherwise specified, workshops take place at our office – 2700 Southwest Freeway in Houston.
  • Workshops are designed around small group work, peer learning and hands-on activities.  For this reason, they are capped at 45 participants (though A+ may offer up to four sections simultaneously, serving up to 120 participants at a time.)
  • A+ can offer custom workshops at your campus or follow up with personalized, in-class coaching for teachers and instructional leaders – contact us for more information.
