The MAX Organization

Our History

Founded by Dr. Mark Forget in 2001, MAX Teaching started through his classroom experience in the areas of reading and writing instruction. MAX has evolved into a team of nationwide consultants serving K-12, undergraduate, and graduate level professional development. In addition, MAX Teaching also works with trade unions to develop curriculum and instruction for apprenticeship training.

Our Mission and Vision

Our mission at MAX Teaching is to promote and develop school communities in which reading, writing, speaking, listening, and thinking serve as the foundation for life-long learning.

We Believe…

  • Literacy is the new civil right of this era.
  • All children should view themselves as readers and writers.
  • Children need to be engaged in environmental, recreational and vocational reading and writing activities.
  • Motivation, Acquisition, and eXtension are the keys to effective lesson planning.
  • All children can achieve at high levels if given literacy strategies for success.

MAX Teaching aspires to become a premier staff development resource, to inspire educators, and to develop a 21st century model of the art and science of teaching.
