Level 2 of this training includes:
MODULE 1: Creating Inclusive Learning Environments leading to Effective Classroom Management
In this training module, we will discuss the importance of creating safe, inclusive and equitable classrooms which will enable a teacher to exercise effective classroom management skills. You will learn how to plan for differentiated instruction by using instructional strategies which cater to multiple intelligence, and enabling students to relate to the curriculum through drawing on their backgrounds, experiences, and knowledge to create a culturally responsive learning environment.
MODULE 2: Planning Inquiry-based Teaching to Inspire Excellence
This training module will give you an introduction to inquiry based teaching and learning which is an approach that empowers students to be involved in their learning by encouraging them to use inquiry and critical thinking skills to develop new understandings and ultimately take positive action. In turn students become lifelong learners who are more creative, positive and independent. This is the model of learning used in many private schools and is now being introduced into the public school system in Canada.
MODULE 3: Authentic Assessment
This training module will discuss ‘authentic’ assessment which is a way of evaluating knowledge and accomplishments that is ‘worthwhile, significant, and meaningful’ instead of multiple choice standardized tests. You will be be able to plan for both formative (assessment throughout learning) and summative (assessment at the end of learning) by becoming familiar with a variety of assessment tools and techniques.
Once you complete registration, you will be granted access to a members page with video trainings, written summaries and recommended resources. You will also have the link to join the private facebook group for parents to ask questions and share resources.
