This course is specifically designed for and restricted to Participating Teachers in CGU’s GEO-FAR Induction Program. The course uses Doug Lemov’s Teach Like a Champion as one of its core texts. In addition to readings, candidates will work through a number of on-line modules (many from IRIS, see http://iris.peabody.vanderbilt.edu/resources.html). Each week a collection of techniques will be examined in depth. The class utilizes a Professional Learning Community (PLC) structure and frame. Participating teachers should expect to engage in reading, writing, student-centered discussions and activities and to reflect upon the techniques’ application to their own teaching practices. Participants will engage in synchronized virtual meetings every two weeks. These meeting times are yet to be determined.
