Course Description:

Self-paced Professional Development Credit classes incorporate online content, quizzes, interactivities and a Course Action Plan you can put to use in your work environment. Learning takes place asynchronously, at your convenience, and may be completed over a period of 4 weeks. Note, teachers looking for graduate credits, please check with your issuing authority about whether it will accept these online teacher courses for graduate credit.

Schools and educators all over the country are engaged in implementing the Common Core State Standards. This can be a challenge. This three part course is designed to provide teachers the support and confidence they need to implement the standards in their classrooms.

Section A, Common Core Instruction Practices, 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 included in this section help teachers strive to develop self-reliant students who take responsibility for their own learning.

Section B, Common Core Assessment & Evaluation, focuses on helping teachers assess basic academic skills and identify areas in which students need support. This section contains tips, templates, and strategies that help teachers periodically collect data to assess if students are meeting the set academic goals.

Section C, Reflective Teaching Practice, focuses on helping teachers develop a process of reflective thinking and becoming sensitive and responsive to the needs and issues of students. The practical examples and techniques explained in this section provide an understanding of the phrase ‘learning while teaching.’ This section also includes an additional resource that helps teachers write a reflective statement by giving you step-by-step guidelines to combine all your professional development activities. Teachers completing this course become better education professionals and in turn are also able to implement the Common Core requirements.

    I just completed 90 hours of Professional Learning with the help of the Professional Learning Board. I was pleased with this on-line study and wanted to thank you for providing such a variety of lessons. I can honestly say, as I reflect back on each lesson, that I obtained valuable knowledge that has refreshed and prepared me for the classroom after being retired for several years. I plan to use my lessons and recommended resources as reference points when needing new ideas or skills. I was most interested in the reading lessons and especially enjoyed the Read Write Think site because I hope to obtain a job teaching students who are not reading on grade level. Reading Across the Curriculum was packed with information and resources that I plan to access again in the future. After taking the on-line Cloze test presented in this lesson, I became more fully aware of how quickly frustration can flare. I was reminded of the importance of keeping up with new teaching strategies as well the type of tests being used and am very excited about having the opportunity to apply the lessons I have learned to my personal teaching style. I loved all the ideas on how to use technology, including the cell phone, and will definitely be using technology whenever I can. I hope to challenge my students and guide them to use the web to create their own works to be shared with the world. In addition, I will no longer look at a bully and a victim in the same way, and I am challenging myself to stay calm when difficult situations present themselves and to ask the correct questions. Of course, I realize I will not be perfect, but I have been motivated by what I learned and am looking forward to the upcoming year in a positive way. I understand that in order to grow as a teacher, I must be honest with myself and identify areas where I need help. By keeping a journal, I hope to better understand what is beneficial for my students and to reach out to others to gain new ideas.

    I learned a great amount from taking the course about effective evaluations. I appreciated the specific examples of how to strategically plan, implement, and monitor student progress to enable mastery of standards in the classroom. Thank you for the attachments and pdf documents for additional classroom resources.
