Attendance is Required

The Textbook is required

Read the Syllabus, all you need to
know about the course is there!

The method I employ currently is a quiz over each reading in my course.

After going through the readings I would include discussions as part of the grade as
well. The ability to answer questions about the reading when called upon would be
how the daily grade is tallied.

Give short lesson quizzes at the beginning of class before going over the material
that was supposed to be read.

Assign experts for different readings to come up with questions for discussion
throughout the year. Then evaluate the quality of preparation from the experts and
the quality of responses from the class as part of the daily grade. Give the experts
supplemental material to that go into greater detail about the topic as well, or have
them independently research depending on the course level.

+ Personal Reflection

n  I enjoyed learning to think about effective ways to
communicate with a specific and flexible structure (BOPPPS).
I generally broke up lessons with listening already, but this
gave me more ideas on how to shift gears in a lesson
(teaching methods and tips). Using Bloom’s helps me think
about what I want them to accomplish learning. I also have a
better understanding of the vast wealth of free technological
tools at my disposal. I think it will be very useful in how I
approach my lesson planning, assessment, and structure
classroom activity. Thanks for the class!

ACP Spring 19 Reflective Essay Keith Almstedt

I found the course to be very informative and
practical. Each module was useful and progressed in a
logical manner. The first module aimed at preparation and
gave us an overview of the way we were going to approach
planning a lesson using BOPPPS. The second module gave us
numerous ways to engage students in learning and a wealth
of resources as well as strategies. The third module
discussed assessment and introduced me to a number of
possibilities I had not considered. The fourth module
introduced me to an incredible number of technological
resources I will be able to use going forward. All of the
modules were informative and pragmatic.

The preparation for learning is something I have
considered since our first meeting. I directly make it
clear from the outset of class what our goal for learning
should be during that session. The use of Bloom’s to think
about what level of learning we are trying to achieve is
great. I also have more strategies available to make sure
reading gets done, and ways to reward students who are
prepared. Thinking about objectives for each lesson will
make planning much more efficient for me going forward.

The second module was great for introducing me to a
number of teaching tips. There were plenty of strategies
for teaching that I was exposed to in this module that I
was unaware of before taking this course. This makes me
excited to have a number of approaches to use which should
help me communicate to different types of learners more
effectively. I also feel like I have a number of new
approaches to try and get more students involved in class.

Likewise the third module gave me plenty of ways to go
about assessment. I am excited about the possibilities to
keep the process of testing fresh and exploring new options
in this regard. The number of technological resources
introduced in the fourth lesson is a boon for me as well.
I look forward to exploring this avenue the most. I
believe it is important to use the tools our students are
accustomed to maximize participation and hopefully
effective learning.

In summary this course was highly informative. It was
structured in an easy to follow manner. The sequence of
lessons unfolded in a logical order. The material
presented was very clear and easy to employ both in the
classroom and in preparation for lessons. Thanks for the
course, thoroughly enjoyed it!
