Full course description
The main objective of this course is to provide an in-depth look at the explicit instructional methodologies presented in the highly successful book: Explicit Instruction: Effective and Efficient Teaching written by Anita Archer and Charles Hughes. Each week we will explore how to develop and deliver effective lessons while learning engagements techniques for active learning. From the book: “Explicit instruction is systematic, direct, engaging, and success oriented – and has been shown to promote achievement for all students. This highly practical and accessible resource gives special and general education teachers the tools to implement explicit instruction in any grade level or content area. The authors are leading experts who provide clear guidelines for identifying key concepts, skills, and routines to teach; designing and delivering effective lesson; and giving students opportunities to practice and master new material.” The course instructors have trained under Anita Archer to deliver her instructional methods.
