Get ready for an interactive day of learning!

Just like in an advisory meeting, you will sit in a circle. You will talk, share, and problem-solve with other middle-level educators. Tap into real situations from your own experiences. Bring challenges you are facing with individual students or your whole class. The facilitator will lead you through exercises to help you establish and maintain routines in your classroom.

All Origins workshops are highly interactive, providing many opportunities for you to talk with other educators and ask your most compelling questions to workshop facilitators.
