Syllabus

Week 1: Self-Assessment - Initial:
Participants will be provided with a rubric that will help them assess where they are in the continuum from a teacher-centered to a student-centered classroom. After watching a teacher use the rubric, with guidance from a mentor, participants will be asked to evaluate themselves and reflect the results. 


Week 2: Student-Centered Inquiry: On Paper:
 
Participants will learn how to take a current lesson that may be more teacher-centered, and to alter it component-by-component, to create a more student-centered lesson. 

Week 3: Student-Centered Inquiry: On Paper:
 
Participants will get to watch a coach in action helping a teacher look for ways to make their teaching more student-centered and to identify obstacles and solutions. 

Week 4: Self-Assessment - Final:
 
In the last week of the course, participants will reflect on a change they tried to make in their classroom. Through peer review all participants will have the opportunity to evaluate these transformations and to receive feedback that will encourage further growth.
