The How to Teach Us online course was designed to help K-12 teachers integrate student voice into their classrooms. “How To Teach Us” was named as such because, in an effort to showcase strategies to enhance classroom practices around student voice, three separate documentaries were constructed to coincide with the three weekly themes of the course that specifically follow elementary, middle, and high school students.
The three focus areas for the course were: significant learning, day-to-day routines/schedules, and student-centered assessment practices. The course is designed to be completed over a total of 9 hours of work, with three separate assignments that ultimately culminate in a teacher presentation of learning (POL).
