As your classroom changes, so does your role as a teacher. The purpose of the Common Core in the subjects of Mathematics, English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects standards is to ensure that students are college and career ready no later than the end of high school. We need to achieve a greater focus and coherence in the curriculum. With the knowledge of this course, you may find yourself acting more as a coach and facilitator as your students become more active in their own learning. In this course, you will explore how to foster and encourage self-direction in your students and create a learning environment that encourages collaboration and creativity. Learn how you can help your students manage, monitor, and modify their own learning, and inspire them to develop the self-discipline and thinking skills they need to thrive in and outside of the classroom.
