Active Learning in the Contemporary Classroom (CURI 6569) – NEW Course!Location: Massapequa High School
Dates: 9/14,21; 10/5,19,26; Sat.; 8:30-5:30

This course is available for all grade levels and helps participants focus attention on study skills as basic skills; understand the need to organize the teaching of study skills; and actively involve students in their own learning. Do we need active learning in today’s classroom? Active learning is a form of learning in which teaching strives to involve students in the learning process more directly than in other methods. Active learning is important in the contemporary classroom. It creates a high level of self-monitoring, checking for understanding, and the application of various strategies. In doing this it helps students distinguish and differentiate between important and unimportant information, analyze, compare and contrast and dig deeper for meaning. This course is designed to help educators determine if contemporary classrooms serve as a context for active learning. In this course, participants will explore various practical active learning strategies and will learn how to successfully implement them into the classroom. Some of these strategies will include Flipped Classroom, Collaborative Grouping, Interactive Games, Stations, Reciprocal Questioning and Flexible Seating and Space Design. These strategies involve students working together and individually. Participants will learn how to create the right design for engaging students.
