PD for Teachers

+ Curriculum for Students


REAL Impact

R.E.A.L.® works with schools by serving teachers and students simultaneously.

All R.E.A.L.® programs serve teachers and students in tandem — this two-pronged approach is the “secret sauce” behind our impact!

Schools design a program that reflects their vision and needs by choosing among several options for both PD & Curriculum. We’re here to help you dream big and get tactical when it comes to designing a great-fit discussion skills curriculum. 

PD For Faculty

All teachers using R.E.A.L. Discussion in their classes must be certified in the R.E.A.L. method. We offer Sprint, Cohort, and Custom PD pathways – get in touch with us to talk through which is best for your faculty. 

All R.E.A.L.® Certification includes:

  • One-on-one ‘Office Hours’ consult
  • Interactive group learning experience
  • Evergreen access to an asynchronous course
  • Year-long access to R.E.A.L. portal (which is where R.E.A.L. impact dashboards live)

Once certified, faculty become a part of our community where they have access to :

  • On-demand instructional coaching
  • Live events and resources
  • A professional network

Get in touch to identify the best R.E.A.L. Certification Path for your Faculty! 

Curriculum for students

All students using R.E.A.L. Discussion must have a R.E.A.L. Coursepack. R.E.A.L. Coursepacks are sold on an annual, per-student basis.

R.E.A.L.® Curriculum is available in middle and high school versions:

  • R.E.A.L. Jr. Coursepack: Best for grades 6-8
  • R.E.A.L. Classic Coursepack: Best for grades 8-10

Each R.E.A.L.® Coursepack includes:

  • One R.E.A.L. Portfolio (which scaffolds a full year of screen-free conversation)
  • One R.E.A.L. Portal log-in (tool for entering data and reflections) 

Schools may choose Standard or Customized Coursepacks. 

NOTE: Many schools choose to sell R.E.A.L. Coursepacks through their school bookstore. We are happy to share ISBNs and coordinate shipment with Bookstore Managers once the best-fit Coursepacks have been selected and designed.
