DAVE BURGESS CONSULTING, INC. TITLES AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

Co-owned by award-winning educators, Dave Burgess Consulting, Inc., uses combined experience to deliver professional development presentations that provide practical strategies to dramatically improve instruction and student engagement. They lead major reform initiatives that result in significant improvements in teaching and learning at both the school and district level.

As educators, their work focuses on building the leadership capacity of both administrators and teachers through coaching, collaboration, and building a positive culture of change. As publishers, their titles are sparking an educational revolution all over the world.

Keeping teachers actively engaged in professional development (PD) throughout the year can be a strain on time and valuable resources. With PD collections on Gale's eBook platform, administrators can empower teachers in a lasting way, meet individual and group goals, and still be cost-effective. Plus, schools now have the option to upgrade their Dave Burgess PD collections by adding alignments to the Danielson Framework for Teaching or the Marzano Focused Teacher Evaluation Model. And it all begins by putting thousands of PD titles from expert authors and publishers, like Dave Burgess, at users’ fingertips:
