Professional Development Workshops

Depth & Complexity Framework Training

Experience the highest quality workshops as our team guides educators from your school/district in best practices for implementing Depth & Complexity. Our consultants (nearly all classroom teachers themselves) deliver training focused on the practical application of Depth and Complexity, encouraging teachers to use learned practices in their classrooms right away.

The Depth and Complexity Framework is used in thousands of schools and districts to create appropriately differentiated and rigorous learning experiences for all students. While used originally within Gifted/Talented Education programs, Depth and Complexity has spilled over as intended, into the heterogeneous classroom. More than ever, educators are turning to Depth & Complexity as the pedagogical engine that ensures students are prompted to think critically.
