Delivery, Enrollment, and Facilitation
This is a mastery-based course with no discussion forums. The course will be delivered in a fully online format. This course is non-facilitated, and is designed to be completed independently. It is self-paced, with an enrollment period of 60 days, which begins immediately upon confirmation of registration. A Help Forum is included in the course that will be carefully monitored by a full-time online facilitator.
Participants will explore ways to create lesson plans that are appropriate for the age, knowledge, and interests of all students. The importance of providing accommodations to meet individual student needs will be examined. Participants will write a lesson plan and teach that lesson. They will then complete a self-assessment checklist and write a summary highlighting strengths and areas that need enhancement.
