EDU 506 Prepared Classroom: Evidence Based Learning

Credits: 3
Prerequisites: none
Distance Learning Options:

Teachers must meet the needs of the students in their class, regardless of setting, materials, or differing needs.  This requires knowledge and understanding of evidence-based practices that have the biggest impact on student learning.  Educators in this course learn high effect strategies that lead to a class of self-regulated learners that are productive in both independent and collaborative work.  Components examined include evidence-based learning practices, lesson length, communicating and teaching daily routines and expectations, creating independent and collaborative work routines, and creating self-regulated learners.  This course provides practitioners with the knowledge and skills to create self-regulated learners who are engaged in learning because they know what is expected of them and therefore have the cognitive capacity and energy to learn new content.  This course is created and approved by Gail Boushey and Allison Behne, authors of The CAFE Book, Expanded Second Edition.
