Do all your teachers know how to design a lesson or instructional unit? Do they know how to design practice? Pretend that you are teaching a subject in September so that test prep in April will be unnecessary. Would all of your teachers know how to do this?

Join Learning Science in the Classroom – Summer Sessions. It is a two-day summer session valuable for most teachers but is targeted at teachers with three years of experience or less, teachers working outside their areas of certification, and teachers without certification. Tuition is $950 per teacher, lunch included, and $750 per teacher if the district is a FASL client. Digital followup is included in the tuition.

Teams Improving Practice

TIP - Improving Learning for All Students School Wide

Recommended to start between August and October

Teams Improving Practice (TIP) changes schools by helping teachers collaborate with teachers and including school administrators to guide the process. It starts with understanding learning, and moves to motivation and the role of social relationships in change and improvement. TIP works with a small cohort of teachers as a Teacher Learning Cohort (TLC) and within months almost all of those teachers are changing their classroom practices with measured student learning improvement. Within another few weeks other teachers in their schools are doing the same. 

What We Do

School Improvement

FASL’s team-based, peer-to-peer, school improvement model uses the sciences of cognition, motivation, and social-emotional learning to move the needle of student growth school-wide.

Conference Design

FASL designs one- to three-day events to challenge participants and to act with new knowledge.


FASL consultants work with school, district, and state leadership to consolidate initiatives and align materials to the learning sciences. Increase your returns on investments with measurable growth.


Keynotes are paired with breakout sessions to move inspiration to innovation. Participants are asked to act on what they learned at the keynote address.

Teacher & Leadership Development

FASL works with teachers who want to become leaders in the learning sciences. Using webinar-based book studies and blended learning models, we explore the sciences of leadership and learning.
