Looking for quality professional development? The Hawaii State Teachers Association is launching three new courses this month that are approved for reclassification credit.
All three courses are developed in partnership with Leeward Community College and are designed around the standards of professional development.
If interested, you must act quickly to hold your spot in the course as registration ends Oct. 29.
Our three new courses are:
PDE3 section #303698
The purpose of this course is to examine current philosophies of teaching, explore the concept of decolonization and identify safe as it relates to education and teaching. Participants will build a foundation of understanding to help them design and implement strategies that promotes identity safe and culturally responsive environments.
PDE3 section #303669
The purpose of this course is to examine current beliefs about teaching and learning, explore the concept of identity and identity-safe classrooms, and design and implement an activity or lesson that promotes identity-safe environments and culturally responsive teaching (CRT). The course will be based on the information in the book, Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain. Once you are enrolled in the course, you will receive a digital code to access your copy of the e-book. The code will be sent to the email address you submit when you pay the deposit for the course.
PDE3 section #303668
Participants will review functional differences that affect learning and identify ways they can adapt instructional strategies and behavior management plans. Participants will make practical adjustments to their current practices based on what researchers have identified as differences in brain development leading to identifiable differences in learning strengths and styles.
Complete the registration process by Oct. 29
