Essential Strategies for Understanding in ELA
Essential Strategies for Understanding in ELA engages teachers from all disciplines, K-12th grade, to examine seven thinking strategies for your Educator-Strategy Toolbox for in-person, virtual or hybrid classrooms. The essential meaning making strategies are: Conceptualizing, Note Making and Summarizing, Comparing, Reading for Understanding, Predicting and Hypothesizing, Visualizing and Graphic Representation, and Perspective Taking and Empathizing.
Today's collective knowledge base calls for learners who will be able to conceptually understand larger ideas and processes and transfer their learning to new situtations using these strategies and accompanying tools. It is with hope this course inspires you--a designer of instruction, to see the impact your work has on students' futures.
NOTE: Required textbook must be acquired separately.
This course is applicable towards the English Language Arts Teaching Certificate.
