Welcome. My name is Corbett Harrison, and I have been an educator and a teacher-trainer since August of 1990. I specialize in teaching writing using differentiated instruction. I also focus on critical thinking techniques, especially during the pre-writing and revision steps of the writing process. Every year, I challenge myself to improve my instruction: I am curretly developing grammar and vocabulary lessons so that they're differentiated and promote deep, critical thinking skills, and I incorporate them into my classroom routines to promote a student-centered classroom environment.

The Northern Nevada district I serve has a "balanced calendar" that has me teaching from early August to early June, and during my 7 weeks of summer and during my two annual two-week breaks, I independently contract to present workshops to school districts and professional organizations around the country.

This October, I am presenting in both Carson City, Nevada (October 8) and Billings, Montana (October 21).

Our spring break here is March 20-31, 2017. As of yet, I have had no requests for either of my two weeks off. As soon as I book a session during one of those weeks, I will take down the availability of the other so that I have a little time off this spring.

I have already begun receiving requests for the summer of 2017, but nothing has been officially booked yet.

You can find general information about the cost of my workshops here.

If you would like to check my availability for 2016-17, please contact me at this e-mail address.


       Because writing--when taught right--can be the most enjoyable part of your teaching day, I created this website.

My students love to laugh while we explore the patterns of complex and compound sentences. My classroom's Sophisticated Sentence routine works so much better than any grammar or punctuation worksheet ever could!

Thank you for your interest in this new page I am developing for the 2016-17 school year. Please check back soon to find new resources!
