EDU 508 Prepared Classroom: Evidence Based Teaching

Credits: 3
Prerequisites: none

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 teaching practices that have the biggest impact on student learning.  Components examined include concept mapping, deliberative practice, direct instruction, feedback/reinforcement, transfer of learning, clear goal intentions, teacher clarity, differentiation, data-driven decision making, learner diversity, brain compatible instruction, and organizing student information.  This course provides practitioners with the knowledge and skills to teach engaging lessons to meet student needs and required standards in any setting.  This course is created and approved by Gail Boushey and Allison Behne, authors of The CAFE Book, Expanded Second Edition.
