Course 3: Teaching and Learning in the K-12 Classroom

Course Description

The series of sessions under this theme addresses some of the most critical matters which K-12 teachers are recommended to handle across the K-12 spectrum to understand how learners respond to the teaching and learning environment, and why they respond in such ways. Comprehending this relies on a substantive amount of self-reflection, effective classroom management, planning and profound thinking from the teacher. To address these matters, the curse starts with managing possible ways to break writing skills into learnable steps, followed by ways to adapt teaching material to help children with dyslexia. At generic level, the effectiveness of classroom instructions is discussed through critical evaluation of the participants’ current practice. The course concludes with the involvement of the participants in developing hands-on strategies for encouraging critical skills among young learners.
