Full course description
At all times, but particularly when the processes and practices of teaching and learning are moved online, it is important to remember that a student's home and community life play a big part of who they are, how they learn, and why you see growth. Joseph Schwab's Four Commonplaces framework—Subject Area, Learner, Milieus, and Teacher—will be used to provide a structure for exploring this essential question.
In order to guide your exploration, this Interactive Learning Module has three learning objectives. Participants in this module will be able to:
- Interpret and summarize the Four Commonplaces in terms of what they mean for remote learning for equity and inclusion;
- Illustrate their own Four Commonplaces with respect to their teaching and community; and
- Assess the use of the Four Commonplaces in a teaching situation.
If you are also seeking Professional Growth Points (PGPs), a fourth learning goal applies to you, as you will:
- Construct a plan for incorporating the Four Commonplaces into your everyday teaching practices to support equity and inclusion.
