For Teachers: Learning Strategies for the Classroom
Taught by Annie R
Annie Rudnick is a 6th grade history teacher in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. She is described by her students as having killer dance moves, never lying, and calling on everyone “like all the time”. She holds education degrees from New York University and Teachers College at Columbia. Before becoming a full-time teacher she worked as an after school tutor at 826NYC and 826Los Angeles, and as an educator at the New York Historical Society. In her spare time she enjoys tacos.
It’s a new year and a new chance to add to your repertoire of classroom activities and learning strategies for the rest of the school year. This one-night class is designed to add to the tool belts of both new and experienced teachers, as well as those preparing to enter the classroom for the first time.
In this class you will be introduced to seven rigorous and joyous classroom activities that can easily be adapted for Do Nows, Partner Work, Independent Practice, and/or Homework.
While originally piloted in middle school classrooms, these seven learning activities can be used in all content areas from 5th – 12th grades. It's best for those teaching academic subject/content classes, rather than other subjects like gym or art.
- How to facilitate seven new learning activities
- Best practices for classroom management
- Tips to increase student engagement
- Extension activities and variations to build on the original seven strategies
- Materials and exemplars will be provided for a variety of content areas including history, ELA, math and science.
As a teacher we all know everything is easier when there are snacks involved. So, there will also be cookies.
