Thank you for visiting Cornerstone Teacher Learning.

Our NESA accredited professional learning courses are designed around one core principle: there is a difference between what teachers do, which is teach writing, and what students do, which is write.

We think understanding that difference is the bedrock of writing improvement that works.

Like you, we’re on an improvement journey. We regularly update our courses and create new ones in response to what we have learned from you. You are welcome to check back regularly for updates or new courses.

We are also excited to announce our new subscription service Writing Improvement Unlimited. We wanted to create something that would allow us to join your literacy team and stay the course.

Look around at our course offerings and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Not sure that neuroscience offers much in the way of day to day classroom learning.

But for those of you interested in long learning - our thinking does have an impact on the physical structure of the brain.

A very interesting read for those of you who teach students who suffer from depression and anxiety.
