Teaching Students Higher Order Thinking Skills For the New Common Core State Standards
MSE 5 CI 148
Susan and Del Goodale bring an all-new graduate course that addresses a complex, but important aspect of learning: the skills of higher order thinking. Whether it be through the requirements of Common Core College and Career Readiness or the mastery of subject-level content, students must learn how to problem-solve and think: creatively, meta-cognitively, critically, and analytically. In this course, educators will learn and practice more than two dozen easyto- use models, teaching strategies, techniques, and applications that can be quickly adapted to their respective classrooms. Their students,
likewise, will become proficient in the thinking skills needed for success both in school and in life beyond the classroom. Three hours of graduate credit will be received from Quincy University. A required textbook is available at the IVCC Bookstore.
Beverages and meals will be on your own.
