The South Carolina Teaching Standards (SCTS) 4.0 self-paced learning module is intended for licensed South Carolina educators who want to learn more about the use of questions, routines, and delivery modes where teachers use research-based activities and materials to assess student understanding of content before, during, and at the end of instruction. Through the use of effective question planning, delivery, and evaluation teachers can determine student understanding of content, individualize delivery, and engage students in the learning process. Utilization of effective questions can increase student participation and motivate students. A variety of resources will be used to deliver this instruction. This learning module is not designed to enhance or replicate evaluator training.
