Standard: Teacher and Learning

10 week course

This course is a book-study.

 

Course Overview

Do you have students with multiple academic abilities in your classroom? Are you still using Robin Reading and other dinosaur instructional strategies?  Today, educators need more effective teaching practices and strategies to ensure student academic achievement as students return to school educationally malnourished due to COVID 19. This course is designed as a book study focused around the book, Why Are We Still Doing That? Positive Alternatives To Problematic Teaching Practices by Persida Himmele and William Himmele.  This course will look closely at various instructional practices that research identifies as problematic while exploring effective instructional practices that better support student’s academic achievement.

 

Participants will meet twice via Zoom to discuss the chapters, collaborate and share their thoughts and ideas about the book.  Instructional Redesign: Alternatives to Problematic Teaching Practices will provide educators with the knowledge of new effective teaching practices and strategies.  This course will also allow participants to take a closer look at their own instructional methodologies, and to compose an instructional guide with new alternatives to problematic teaching practices learned from this course. 

 

Course Objectives

  1. To increase your framework of thinking about instructional strategies and practices.

  2. To learn and understand alternatives to traditional and/or current instructional practices that better support academic achievement.

  3. Add strategies & tools to your repertoire for supporting more students in greater success during all aspects of teaching and learning.

 

Prerequisites

Participants are expected to have regular access to the Internet and participate in all Zoom meeting sessions.  Participants should be familiar with using email, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Adobe, scanning and uploading files, and browsing the Internet.  Participants are also expected to create a Google account.
