CREATING LEARNING CLASSRM

Topic: Curriculum and Instruction
Instructor: Jodi Slonaker
Method: Online (OWRK)
Sponsor: Teach n' Kids Learn, Inc.
Center Offered: OLPD

Course Description:

One of the challenges facing today’s teachers is the fact that today’s students need to acquire skills habits of mind that were not the focus of classrooms in the past when the focus was on learning content. Today’s students need to now learn not only the content, but how to work with that content in a manner that requires them to work collaboratively with others to analyze information and solve problems, communicate using academic language, take risks and try ideas, make judgments, and be innovative and creative. Unlike some aspects of the academic content, these skills and habits of mind are not something that can be learned through direct instruction. Students need to experience the content through lessons in classrooms that encourage the development of these 21st Century skills and habits of mind. 

Participants will re-imagine their classroom learning space by creating rituals, routines, and communication plans for uninterrupted learning time, develop assignments for collaborative learning, and engage students in rich learning discourse through the use of effective questioning strategies.
