After analyzing lessons and units to determine the best embedded practices as they support diverse learners, participants will divide by grade bands to learn the best practices embedded within them. Looking at and analyzing samples will teach them how to identify specific best practices in action, and what makes them best as a strategy and an action, providing the foundations for differentiation and close reading strategies. Participants will identify best practices pertinent to the grade and discipline they teach, and work them into assignments that scaffold into a final project.

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Analyze lessons to identify embedded best practices that support diverse learners. 
  • Collect and apply new best practices to unit and lesson plans, and through classroom implementation. 
  • Modify practices through reflection on best practice strategies to further refine them. 
  • Combine best practices with pertinent lesson components.

This course is 20 hours
