This course will introduce you to the transformative possibilities that interactive whiteboard systems can have on your social studies curriculum. An interactive whiteboard system is comprised of many separate components from many companies, but when integrated into a whole system, it becomes a powerful instructional tool in the hands of a trained teacher. The first section of this course will provide a brief overview of different digital whiteboard systems and current research of their effectiveness in the classroom. The next section will build a strong foundation of skills necessary to successfully control the hardware and software used. These skills include basic operations, manipulating graphics and objects, overlay tools, and integrating peripheral products. The last section will show you how to integrate these skills into several social studies lessons which then you will apply this knowledge to create a lesson of your own. This course features over 45 videos comprising over five hours of core video-based training, allowing you to see a credentialed teacher/ certified trainer actually using an interactive whiteboard system. The skills and their integration into social studies instruction covered in this course are designed to be transferable to any hardware or software platform.

Please Note: Although having access to any brand of digital whiteboard is not required, it will greatly enhance your learning experience. Most of the software applications referenced are available as free downloadable trials and are compatible with Windows and Mac operating systems.

Most lessons in this course demonstrate hardware and software features through the use of core and auxiliary online streaming videos. Core videos, which are embedded in the web page, have been created and professionally produced specifically for this course and feature a digital whiteboard system from SMART Technologies. Auxiliary videos, which can be accessed via web links, have been produced by others and feature different digital whiteboard systems.

Students who can read effectively and efficiently have a door-opening skill: an ability to decode, understand and successfully interact with information in a host of subject areas, and an opportunity to be a successful learner. Because the focus of this course is to learn and apply specific coaching strategies in the teaching of reading, the course will not address every aspect of reading instruction, nor is it intended as a course on a particular methodology of reading instruction. However, when you are referencing a particular methodology of reading instruction, you will be asked to tie it to your state standards for the grade you are teaching. Effective coaching strategies are paired with intentional best practice in reading in an effort to grow both kinds of skills. The methods of coaching intentional best practice in reading will help every teacher to be more effective and intentional in the teaching of reading and will provide a methodology to support any and all specific reading programs.

After all of the strategic plans are aligned, and the assessments are perfected, and the student achievement data has been analyzed….schools will still need to be a safe, warm and inviting learning environment in order to serve the basic human needs of learners. One of the key missing ingredients in reform literature is how vital it is for professionals/schools to explore strategies that make schools safe physically, emotionally, socially, and instructionally.

As the school population of English Language Learners continues increasing rapidly across the United States, classroom teachers from K-12 are confronted with the great challenge of helping them acquire skills in English in addition to teaching them in the content areas. Many teachers do not have the training or knowledge to confront the task, and schools may not have the resources to assist them. This course provides them with the background necessary for meeting the needs of students from different countries and cultures including encouraging intercultural exchanges, information about assessment and the language learning process, cultural awareness, and a wide range of techniques and suggestions for offering a high quality learning experience for ELLs.

The course presents and analyzes the foundations of bilingual education for teachers to be able to understand and incorporate the most relevant aspects in their classrooms. As teachers gain expertise in the theory and methods of second language learning in general, they will learn to recognize the real level of ELLs, both in Basic Interpersonal Communicative Skills (BICS) and Cognitive Academic Language Proficiency (CALP). In addition, becoming familiar with the way English is taught around the world and ways to access their students’ schemas, educators will gain insights into how their ELLs have been exposed to the language previously and how they are accustomed to learning.

One of the main points in the course is that good instructional practices for ELLs will benefit all learners. Recommendations for an eclectic approach include assigning buddies, cooperative learning, reading strategies, and incorporating the arts to create a learning environment that will motivate all students to reach their full potential as human beings as well as academically.
