ATT Teacher Education Class - Using The Lecture To Its Fullest Potential

8-9:30pm




For ATT Teachers

USING THE LECTURE TO ITS FULLEST POTENTIAL (ATT Course Code CD, ID, EP)                  ICJA Library

We all do a lot of lecture style teaching in class. We know that it has major drawbacks but it also has major significance to instruction. We will study ways to enrich our lectures to tap into students’ memory, train them to manage information, retain what we teach them, and build comprehension and good “habits of the mind.”

Day and Time: Wednesday and Tuesday evening, 8:00-9:30 pm

Sessions: 2 sessions, Wednesdays, Jan. 14,  and Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015 (1/2 credit)

Presented by: Rabbi Avrohom Shimon Moller, ATT
