  • Johnny Can Spell Start-Up - Subscription is available to a school who has previously participated in JCSpell training. Each teacher will receive his/her individual access account. The content of this version is the same as JCSpell Start-Up 2018-19. The difference? Participant work in this version is not monitored by NINE Enterprises and a Certificate of Completion is not available. This version allows participants "open access" to all material at all times. There are no prerequisites to viewing any of the videos. Schools select this version to provide revisit essentials of the approach, for a general review, and to provide systematic training for new-to-campus teachers.
