Pave a pathway for success.

Help your organization understand why educator-child interactions are the critical focus of CLASS by creating a clear vision, building change readiness, and establishing foundational knowledge of quality interactions.

Create a clear vision.

and desired outcomes by engaging in an online, introductory course that helps you:

  • Identify the value and opportunities CLASS can bring to your organization

Build change readiness.

Create a culture prepared for change by engaging your organization in exercises that:

  • Strengthen understanding of the value and importance of educator-child interactions
  • Establish shared expectations and intent for CLASS observations
  • Show alignments between CLASS and current initiatives, such as curriculum

Establish foundational knowledge.

Prepare teachers for focusing efforts on interactions, and for CLASS observations with comprehensive training courses and resources designed to:

  • Increase understanding of effective teacher-student interactions
  • Discover why CLASS is important and how it benefits a teacher’s practice
  • Promote strategies to leverage the CLASS Framework as an improvement tool
