Visual Literacy
Crusade | Teachers Can Speak Visually


Determined to raise the bar on educational communications and improve teachers' ability to effectively present their ideas, I conduct workshops on the neglected half of communication: the visual. A few simple rules and guidelines from graphic arts can transform any printed or screen-based project into a WOW! attention getting project.

Presentation and Workshop Outline

Unit Design


Workshop | Excellence by Design

Curriculum unit design precedes lesson planning, but is often skipped by teachers in a hurry to get to the "teaching." This workshop extends the principles of backward design with instructional design practices to improve teachers' ability to create a coherent instructional design unit that addresses content standards over multiple lesson plans.

Divergent Education
Blog | DivergentED

Out of the box. The art of teaching and learning should break down the traditional walls of "education" and launch the experience upward and onward. This spot on the Web is here to show examples of divergent thinking in education and invite readers to connect. I'm looking for thinking that launches us out of the school "box" and into the realm of creative form, substance, and experience. Fasten your seatbelt.

Just a sample of my work. To see more or discuss possible work >>
