Teachers in this course explore approaches to instruction, assessment and evaluation that they can implement in their classroom. This course focuses on practices teachers can use to promote student motivation and self-learning while decreasing and eliminating behavior issues. The resources, tools, and real-life examples help teachers develop self-reliant students who take responsibility for their own learning. Teachers learn to assess basic academic skills and identify areas in which students may need support. Tips, templates, and strategies help teachers periodically collect data to assess if students are meeting the set academic goals and assist teachers in developing a process of reflective thinking and responsiveness to students' issues and needs. Practical examples and techniques provide teachers with an understanding of the phrase 'learning while teaching.'
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:
1. Cite elements of a PDP (Professional Development Plan).
2. Practice the cycle of reflection, evaluation, and modification.
3. Recognize four models of blended learning.
