Objective and Outcomes: 

  • The goal of this course is to expand teachers' knowledge and improve their use in instructional strategies. In particular, teachers will learn about providing effective feedback to students and helping students monitor their own progress toward learning goals, among other topics. 
  • This course will also offer teachers an opportunity to observe their colleagues' classrooms and discuss the ways in which common problems of practice can be addressed in various classroom settings.  
  • The desired outcome is that each teacher will improve his or her classroom practice because of what he or she has learned. 

Evaluation and Evidence of Learning and Application:

  • Each participant will engage in discussion and write a reflection paper in which they summarize their learning. Participants will use the new learning in their classrooms.
