“Laura has done a phenomenal job of building a research-based foundation; defining thinking, actions, and skills for living in our complex world; showing how to incorporate common core standards and technology into the mix; and providing suggestions on how to asses it all. As an added bonus, she showed us numerous assessment strategies and lesson plans.”
~ Julie P., Assessment Coordinator


“Dr. Greenstein clearly explains how formative assessment can help teachers do their work smarter and more effectively. I especially like the way she weaves practical next-day strategies into the description of the topic. This is a must for any educator who really believes that every child can learn.”
~ Jim L., Connecticut School Superintendent


“Although my teachers agreed that the story of “The Blind Men and the Elephant” can be a metaphor for assessment, you facilitated and illuminated their understanding. Take-aways included valuable and relevant strategies that they could immediately put to use in their classrooms. I admire your dedication to our profession and your outstanding presentation skills. You are truly a 21st century educator”
~ Principal, Cheshire Public Schools
