2. Instructional Strategies – Demo


Along with module 1, this unit forms the heart of a responsive and equitable teaching approach that strong educators use in their daily practice. Here you will learn more about the distinction between fixed and growth mindsets, and how best to support your students to persevere through challenges with the support of their educational communities. Next, you will hear about a continuum of student engagement to deepen your understanding of the types of behaviors and tasks most associated with the highest level of student engagement and effectiveness. In addition, you will explore a robust toolbox of thinking routines you can use to help students process and share their thinking, particularly around complex tasks or topics. To close, you will review common lesson planning structures you may see and utilize as a substitute teacher and make sense of common core standards through student-friendly language, efficient routines, and rigorous and relevant resources.
