T.H.E. P.A.C.T.
Technology Helps Easy & Practical Accessible Curriculum Teaching

This preview webinar on May 3rd, will give you an overview of T.H.E. P.A.C.T. content and time for questions with the presenter, Phyl Macomber. The full day seminar will be held Monday, June 19, 2017 at the beautiful Oregon Garden Resort in Silverton OR. Registration for the June 19th seminar will open at a later date.

Phyl has created a 4-step simple system for how to teach anything to anyone – in a way that students of any ability learn faster and deeper – and teachers succeed in reaching and teaching ALL students while meeting the standards. Her research-based teaching strategies have been published in numerous articles featured in clinical publications in education since 2009 and are being successfully used across North America, and in Saudi Arabia, and Italy. This systems-based instruction, called T.H.E.P.A.C.T., is outlined in Phyl's first book, The Power of T.H.E. P.A.C.T., and is being referred to as “the simple, evidence-based solution for differentiated instruction and meaningful inclusion.”
