Effective teaching skills can have a big impact on each individual student in the classroom. This course begins by introducing you to verbal and non-verbal communication and how to use these tools to stimulate a student's thinking. You will also learn the four main participation structures that guide communication, including their advantages and disadvantages. The lessons will also cover how a teacher uses communication in contrast to how a student uses communication.
Next, the course will tackle instructional planning. You will be introduced to the US National and State learning standards and understand the difference between curriculum frameworks and curriculum guides. Additionally, you will learn how to formulate strong, measurable objectives using cognitive or behavioral approaches as well as how to motivate students using theories of motivation, attribution, interest, and self-efficacy. You will also learn how to select general learning goals for your students.
