Participants will access the information and tools necessary to focus student learning through reading and writing across the curriculum.  Teachers involved in this course will have the chance to reflect, discuss, and implement strategies to improve understanding of nonfiction text.  More specifically, participants will develop strategies to improve their students’ writing skills in any type of classroom setting.

Teachers Positively Impacting Student Learning: The Three E’s of Engagement, Efficacy and Empathy

Participants in this course will investigate ways to impact student behavior and learning by focusing on the Three E’s of Engagement, Efficacy and Empathy. Reading and activities will focus explicitly on ways to engage students and to instill in them the confidence in their own ability to succeed. Participants will work collaboratively to develop goals that are SMART: Strategic, Measurable, Attainable, Results-orientated and Timely. Based upon the work of Marzano, participants will design student-centered activities that involve high energy, friendly competition and self-monitoring. These activities will focus on helping students to make sense of information on their own so that the learning is meaningful and the knowledge is more likely to be retained. Finally, teachers will explore ways to help their students to see the connections between hard work and success in school and life. Formerly CMSV-CEGE 565-R01.
