Articles from "Food for Thought":

Workshops, Etc.

Nancy Ziehme will be giving her Basic Blue Level full-day session at Region 10 near Dallas very soon – Feb 23.  On the same day, Bill Stevenson will be giving a free introductory session at the Floranada Elementary School in Ft. Lauderdale, and any Broward County teacher is welcome.  We are actively trying to arrange a full-day training session with Tom Diebold in Ohio, but dates are hard to juggle with spring breaks and state assessments.  Something will also happen in NJ before the end of the school year.  Keep checking in at our website.        


Price Changes Coming in April

We have not increased our prices for 2 years, but we will do so on April 2.  The changes will not be large, but we wanted to give you a heads up.  You can save a few dollars by ordering before then.  The new prices will be posted on the website on March 2.


Sharing Ideas About Stevenson on Facebook

Nancy Ziehme, our senior trainer, has revitalized the Stevenson Learning Skills Facebook page and turned it into a useful resource.  She has also created a Stevenson Share Group, that you might find particularly helpful.  If you are using the Stevenson Program, or considering it, please check it out.  Click on this link to see the Facebook page, and this one to reach the Share Group.

Our Facebook presence has been basically dormant for about five years, since schools often block Facebook (or used to), and it didn’t seem like a good communication tool for us.  We were wrong.  So many teachers use Facebook so frequently, we are now trying to make use of it ourselves.  But you, the teachers, are integral to the success of the

New website in the works

Our website  is slowly but steadily being rebuilt so that we will have more capabilities in the future.  Although the site may not look very different, in 2017 you will find new materials and new features rolling out one by one.  If you are reading this newsletter, but not on our email list, you may wish to give us your email information so we can keep you up to date.  (click here)            

New Laws - ESSA Takes Over for NCLB


Do you know your ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act)?  Or do you not even want to know what the latest from Washington is?  Either way, some important educational practices are going to change.  ESSA replaces

Testing Season


Spring is testing season in public schools, and seldom do either teachers or students enjoy the process. However, since the process is out of our hands right now, let us focus on the possibilities ahead and not the

Spring and Reading Instruction


Spring and hope go well together, as many writers have observed.  So it seems appropriate to say a few words that might help lift the spirits of educators out there working with struggling readers:  Whatever difficulties you or your students are experiencing, there is hope.

Winter Workshops - Columbus, Dallas and More

We are currently updating the "Events and Workshops" section of our website to reflect workshops scheduled for January 7, 2016 in Columbus, OH and February 11, 2016 in Dallas.  In late February, Bill Stevenson will go to Florida (as you might, if you lived in Massachusetts), and he is making arrangements for school visits now.  Other training and support activities are scheduled for March, April and May, but may not be finalized until the first of the year.  E-mail announcements will be sent to the local areas.

Happy Holidays

The winter school break is very important.  Teachers and students alike need a change - and usually some rest as well.  Have a great time with friends and family, but do not forget to take care of yourself!   

Hints for Time Management Using Stevenson

Whether you call it organizing or juggling, allocating your time to different kinds of instruction is a huge challenge.  If you have limited time with students who are already struggling, you need flexibility.  At the same time, you are under a great deal of pressure to meet dozens of specified standards.  While the Stevenson Program does require you to follow a special sequence, there are numerous ways to adjust your instruction time to make the most of it. Click here for a few brief suggestions
