CURI 6540 SUNY Empire State College
This course that shows educators how to design compelling activities that engage students more meaningfully in their own learning while developing practical life skills, as well as critical thinking skills. Throughout the course, participants learn to apply five specific criteria (the SCORE model) that are characteristic of highly effective, brain-compatible activities. Participants use these criteria continuously to analyze the activities in which they participate, as well as those they plan, ensuring that each includes relevant learning and life skills, meets curriculum requirements, addresses organizational issues, plans to meet desired outcomes, and assesses mastery. With a focus on unlocking the creative potential of both teachers and their students, participants learn how to position effective activities-introductory, informational, practice, review, and culminating- throughout the entire learning process, and provide multiple pathways to learning that are highly engaging while promoting depth of knowledge. 3 graduate credits.
