In just a few days, the second offering for this course will begin, and I am getting excited! The first group had four participants, and far exceeded my expectations regarding how enthusiastic people would be and how valuable the information was to their work. This group will be larger, which I hope will open up new possibilities for different kinds of activities, thus making the learning more active — always a good thing.
Students are expected to check the blog regularly for notices, discussions, and ideas, and each student is expected to add to the collection of material by commenting on other people’s posts and by writing posts of their own. Once the course begins, participants will be named as Authors. An author can edit, publish and delete their posts, as well as upload files/images. Authors do not have access to modify, add, delete, or publish pages.
Posts should always have a Category label to help readers look for information and to help with general organization of this blog. The list may be expanded as needed, and I hope it will help course participants in deciding what to write about. Categories are:
- About This Course — The article is mainly about the SAUniversity24 course itself.
- Classroom Management — The article is mainly about how to use knowledge of type in managing student behavior in the classroom.
- Instruction — The article is mainly about differentiating instruction in the classroom.
- Making Progress — The article is about how the writer is making changes in instruction or making progress with students.
- Textbook Talk — The article responds to passages or sections of the textbook, and should be an invitation to others to respond in kind.
- Theory — The article is mainly about the theory and application of MBTI — how it works, what it means, what it looks like.
- Troubleshooting — The article is mainly about something tried out in the classroom not working as expected. This could be a call for input and/or help from colleagues and/or other readers.
