Online teacher training programs
by Project Read - Framing Your ThoughtsTM
NOW AVAILABLE ANYTIME!
IDA Ontario frequently partners with Language Circle Enterprises to offer two online Framing Your ThoughtsTM webinar/training courses: 1) Sentence Structure and 2) Paragraph Writing. We are pleased to offer these courses at a special discount for Canadian educators.
The Framing Your Thoughts® program is centered on a sequential and systematic method of instruction designed to help students write and arrange accurate and creative sentences and paragraphs. This sequential and multisensory program is part of the Project Read® curriculum, a research-based language arts program.
The "Sentence Structure" course is approximately 6 hours and the Paragraph Writing course is approximately 4 hours. You will have access to the course(s) for two weeks of your choice (you will discuss the start date with Project Read staff).
After registering and paying the course fee with IDA Ontario, you must order and pay for the required course materials in advance, directly from Language Circle Enterprises, allowing enough time for delivery from the U.S. *Please note that shipping times with Canada Post are currently unpredictable and often significantly longer than normal, so allow lots of time for delivery.

HOW IT WORKS - READ CAREFULLY!
- Complete the form below to REGISTER and PAY for the course(s) with IDA Ontario. The course registration fee is in CAD $.
- Contact Language Circle Enterprises and arrange for payment and shipping of materials (in US $). Details will be provided in the registration confirmation email. If you arrange for the shipping of materials for both courses at the same time, the materials/shipping cost will be cheaper (see the note above). Shipping time is typically less than two weeks, BUT THIS IS NO LONGER THE CASE BECAUSE OF Covid-19, so please allow more time for shipping. You must have the materials from Language Circle Enterprises before taking the online webinar(s).
- When you have received the materials, contact Language Circle Enterprises to get the link to the course and specify the two-week period(s) during which you would like to have access to the course(s).
- You can watch the webinar course(s) on your own schedule within the 2 week period(s). It is not necessary (or recommended) to watch the entire webinar at one time. If you would like to take both courses, we recommend you select two different two-week periods so you have enough time to do the courses.
