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.
This course will examine Marzano’s 6-step vocabulary process, backed by the many research studies that have shown the effectiveness of this approach. Studying vocabulary through this process, students learn about vocabulary terms through defining, discussing, engaging, drawing and playing with words. This course will not only provide details about each step but will also share lesson examples for effective implementation.
