Participants will learn the seven core reading strategies used most often by good readers and will ultimately be able to practice and internalize these core strategies when reading for school, work, or pleasure. Participants in the Reading course will also learn how to actively participate and collaborate within peer groups as they come to understand what good readers do. Participants will learn to inspire through reading, and how this will be connected to the CCSS.
According to Harvard School of Education & Medical School “Despite a bevy of research and best-selling books on the topic, many teachers still downplay emotional intelligence as a “touchy-feely” soft skill, But evidence suggests quite the opposite: that high emotional intelligence (EI/EQ) is a stronger predictor of success in our schools & professional life . In fact, high EI bolsters the hard skills, helping us think more creatively about how best to leverage our learning capability”.
Recent studies indicate that emotional intelligence is a powerful key to effective leadership. This valuable online course delivers the in-depth knowledge and practical emotional intelligence skills you need to ensure that you are a strong, emotionally intelligent leader. You will learn how to apply emotional intelligence to specific classroom situations to gain the authority and success you strive for as a leader. You will also keep current on cutting-edge developments in leadership & brain research to help you better collaborate and manage your students.
We know that all learning takes place in a social context and that relationships of enquiry are critical in an effective classroom. We also know that teachers are the architects of these learning relationships. How does teacher emotional intelligence affect student learning? What impact does teacher self-knowledge have on how we select our perception or construct our expectations of students? How well do we really know our professional personalities? More than three decades of research show that students who get along well with others are more successful than those who lack emotional intelligence, also known as “soft skills” or “personality.” We all know about the B students who became highly successful because they have strong people skills. These days, primary and secondary schools and higher education institutions are increasingly offering formalized emotional intelligence training.
