Develop New Courses for 21st Century

This course is designed to prepare educators of all experience levels to create a class that does not yet exist, whether it be a new learning model or new content altogether. This course helps teachers explore motivation for creating and learning, while offering a functional process through which teachers may conceive of a new class from its "idea" stage to school board approval. Topics include motivation, curriculum for the 21st century, standards, development of content outlines, essential questions, thinking skills and rubrics, development of pacing calendars, marketing new courses to students, and school board proposals.

NOTE: Required books must be acquired separately.

This course is applicable towards the Curriculum Design and Assessment Certificate.
