De novo Learning, Inc.

​A New Beginning for Education


The following are brief descriptions of some of the professional development programs De novo Learning offers for K-12 schools.  We recognize and address the challenges of time and the discomforts of change. We specialize in customized programs.  Have a need? Contact us. 


Instructional Coaching

De novo Learning, Inc uses face-to-face and blended models to provide instructional coaching to teachers as well as to train instructional coaches in strategies to employ with their own teachers. De novo has recently partnered with                      an online video-based learning platform.  This partnership will allow districts to provide a cost-effective means of providing quality coaching.  All coaching professional development is customized to meet the specific needs of each individual client. We highly recommend that coaching support be included in all customized training programs.


Instructional Leadership and Continuous Improvement

De novo Learning has developed a proprietary framework for school turnaround.  This model uses the Baldrige Education Criteria for Performance Excellence and current research in best-practices  to work with organizations to help them align their resources; identify strengths and opportunities for improvement; improve communication, productivity, and effectiveness; and achieve strategic goals.  We believe excellence is a journey, not a destination.


Common Core State Standards

De novo Learning consultants offer targeted professional development and assistance to build shared understanding of the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics.  We focus our work on their implications for instruction.  All programs are customized to meet the needs of individual schools or districts.  Our innovative instructional coaching will be built into your personalized program.

             

Assessment

Research shows that there is a lack of training in assessment literacy for pre-service teachers, in-service teachers, and administrators. De novo Learning offers opportunities to learn about the principles of sound assessment, particularly Assessment for Learning and Assessment of Learning. 


Curriculum and Standards Alignment

De novo Learning consultants work with district and school teams of educators to identify learning objectives aligned with the standards and create customized curriculum maps to meet specific needs of that school or district.  


Content-Specific Trainings

We have a well-balanced team of content experts who can tailor trainings to your needs. Whether it is early literacy, math strategies or ELL programs, we can meet your needs! Our consultants are experts in Guided Reading. Six Traits of Writing, Common Core Math, Next Generation Science, and much more. 


Language Acquisition/Cultural Integration

We are so excited to bring our newest program to schools throughout the world.  Using the neurolinguistic approach to language acquisition, we can train your teachers to use research-based strategies to make the language classroom an authentic setting for integrating culture and expanding oral language development.
