7. Character Education, Part I: Community and Cultural Change - 3 Credits - 45 hours ONLINE COURSE - GRADUATE

Program: Curriculum & Instruction: Online Learning

Audience: Teachers

Dates: 2/28/2020 to 5/28/2020

NewStarting Soon
The issue of Character Education has, in many districts, largely shifted from the job of the family and community, to a critical component of classroom instruction. To create and maintain a positive and productive learning environment, students must develop as moral, civic-minded, well-mannered, non-bullying and, generally well-socialized young people. The pervasive influence of violence, drugs and gang activity and the shifting role of family structure have contributed to the negative changes in the behavioral dynamics among many students that negatively impacts schools, classrooms, teachers and, of course, the ability of everyone to learn. This course helps educators identify character issues in their own classroom and provides strategies for how to mobilize resources, including parents and community members. In addition, educators will learn how to create a positive moral community and will explore historical and modern concepts of character and consider how to foreground those concepts for students' learning sake. As part of the curriculum, character education through insight, understanding, instruction, problem-solving and conflict-resolution activities will help educators improve relationships in their classroom communities and provide a safer environment for learning and collaboration among their students.

Dates: 3/20/2020

Reading Plus addresses the hidden hurdle of reading which is the physical aspect of reading specifically tied to eye movements as a student reads text. Reading Plus discovered through decades of research that a full 70% of non-proficient readers and a full 30% of proficient readers read inefficiently. This inefficiency is not a learning disability or matter of intelligence but is due to eye movements as a person reads. Reading Plus found a way to address this and increase reading scores by 2-2.5 grade levels through the use of the Reading Plus patented guided window. Research supports the following outcomes.
• 20 hours of instruction - Tier 1 students will increase by at least one grade level
• 40 hours of instruction - Tier 2 students will increase by two grade levels
• 60 hours of instruction - Tier 3 students will increase by at least 2.5 grade levels
