Welcome to this dual course aimed to help you understand more about enhancing classroom instruction. This dual course consists of the following 5 hour courses:
- Cognitive Skills

Through this two part online PD course, explore various key concepts and practices to support the implementation of Common Core standards into their teaching. Educators are constantly on the look out for practical ways to enhance their classroom instruction in order to benefit their students’ learning. To enable them to do this, the first section focuses on common core based instructional 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 will help teachers strive to develop self-reliant students who take responsibility for their own learning. Building on this, the second section focuses on helping teachers develop a process of reflective thinking and becoming more sensitive and responsive to the needs and issues of students. The practical examples and techniques explained in this section give teachers a new understanding of the phrase ‘learning while teaching.’ This section also includes an additional resource that helps teachers write reflective statements by giving them step-by-step guidelines to combine professional development activities.
