Standards in the Classroom (1 Graduate Professional Development Credit - University of North Dakota)
Schools and educators across the country are experiencing challenges in implementing the Standards. This three part course is designed to provide teachers the support and confidence they need to implement the standards in their classrooms.
Enhancing Instruction through Standards focuses on 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 in this section help teachers develop self-reliant students who take responsibility for their own learning.
Assessment Strategies focuses on helping teachers assess basic academic skills and identify areas in which students need support. This section contains tips, templates, and strategies that help teachers periodically collect data to assess if students are meeting set academic goals.
Reflective Teaching Practice focuses on helping teachers develop a process of reflective thinking and responsiveness to the needs and issues of students. The practical examples and techniques explained in this section provide an understanding of the phrase ‘learning while teaching.’ This section also includes an additional resource that helps teachers write a reflective statement with a step-by-step guide.
