Check out upcoming events, resources, and other information for parents below!
Resilient Children Handbook
The Resilient Children Handbook has short articles and activities you can put to use in strengthening your relationship with your child, engaging them in meaningful tasks to help them build independence, focus, and perseverance, and setting expectations for open communication and mutual respect. Download it at the button below!
Inspired Teaching also offers a “Parenting Resilient Children” workshop that brings our innovative, tried-and-true approach — as you’ll find in the Handbook! — from the classroom to home. We explore how parents can foster fun and creative experiences while allowing their children the room to find solutions to their own problems. Read more about the workshop here.
If you’re interested in bringing the Inspired Teaching approach to the parents in your school community, please contact us.

Inspired Teaching Programs for Teens
Inspired Teaching’s high school programs are great examples of our approach in action. Students are engaged as critical thinkers, empowered to take their education beyond the classroom, and will come away with the skills to take on the complex issues of today and tomorrow.
The only credit-bearing course available to all public and public charter school students in Washington, DC, Real World History teaches history through inquiry, equipping students with crucial skills that prepare them to thrive in our complex 21st century world.
Through student-facilitated conversations, participants learn to productively and respectfully discuss current, controversial topics. Speak Truth teaches students to defend their stances on a myriad of issues and helps them develop and recognize the power of their voices.
It will take work to make engagement the norm this year. It will take marshaling our knowledge of observing and listening to kids, giving and receiving feedback, finding the right words to push a learner forward, and applying creative energy to planning lessons that engage all our students’ senses.
