An Educator's primary role is to develop curriculum that provides opportunities for students to learn course content versus the Educator just teaching the course content. This course will address how educators can create powerful learning opportunities in an engaging and developmentally appropriate environment. Specific content will include deepening the understanding of integrating dispositions of learning, addressing the modalities and multiple intelligences of students, and designing curriculum, an engaging environment, and age appropriate assessments that are aligned with state standards. Additionally, participants will explore ideas on incorporating 21st Century teaching strategies into curriculum construction. This course will take place on-line in Spring A: January 2- February 26.
