651: Connecting With The Non Traditional Learner
serve students with a variety of learning styles.
In the traditional classroom, we associate visual and
auditory teaching strategies with traditional learners.
However, many classrooms have a high population of students
that are non traditional learners. The traditional
teaching strategies of lecture and PowerPoint Notes are
not effective with non traditional learners. This
course focuses on non traditional teaching strategies.
Educators will learn several creative and innovative teaching
strategies designed to connect with students that learn
best with tactile (touch) and kinesthetic (movement) learning
activities. This course is applicable and open for
teachers in all subject areas pre school to Grade 12.
This course is also open and applicable to administrators
and guidance counselors.
652: I Heard It Through The Grapevine:
throughout the nation are filled with educators that are
employing fantastic teaching strategies. While educators
can often grow in their profession via the traditional
graduate course led by a professor, another outlet for
growth and development is via the sharing of successful
teaching strategies and activities with each other.
In this unique course, the students in the course also
serve as the teacher or presenter. During this course,
attendees will be exposed to a variety of fantastic and
creative teaching strategies and activities that are being
employed in classrooms all over the nation. "If
you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange
apples with each other, both of us still have one apple.
However, if I have a fantastic classroom activity and
you have a fantastic classroom activity and we both exchange
those classroom activities, we both now have two fantastic
learning activities." This course involves
a high level of networking and collaboration. This
course is open and applicable for teachers in all subject
areas pre school to Grade 12. This course is also
applicable and open to administrators and guidance counselors.
