Effective Teaching Strategies

MAT703

What is involved when a teacher creates and orchestrates an effective lesson?  Students will delve into how teachers facilitate the engagement of all students, as they backwards plan, activate students' prior knowledge, incorporate a variety of learning modes, use formative assessments, apply before-during-after scaffolding, leverage technology, allow opportunities for student processing, ask critical thinking questions, and provide a safe and supportive learning environment for their students.  Fieldwork observations at the School for Creative Studies will comprise a component of this course. Open only to MAT students. 3 units.
