Course Description:

“How can I help my students become critical thinkers and innovators?”

Implementing standards across the curriculum involves staying up-to-date with current standards and establishing new teaching practices that will support them. It is increasingly essential for educators to develop students who not only are critical thinkers but innovators as well. This course helps teachers to build up such students.

Section A, Standards-Based Instruction through STEM, brings together four major disciplines: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics into one cohesive system. This section includes the benefits and opportunities associated with this new education paradigm and guides teachers to customize classroom instruction so that students develop the skills they need to survive in today’s knowledge-based world.

Section B, Common Core Mathematics for All Teachers, focuses on the Common Core Standards for Mathematics and how educators can apply those mathematical principles to everyday life. This section contains ideas, tools, and activities that teachers can use to make math interesting and fun for their students.

Section C, Student Centered Learning, helps teachers introduce the concept of student centered learning in their classrooms. When students clearly understand their learning goals, and are able to work towards them, they are self-motivated. This approach to learning allows teachers to customize and differentiate curriculum for each student. Teachers facilitate learning by being a coach and mentor.
