Instructor:

This 3-credit Alaska Pacific University distance education class is designed to assist teachers in identifying and using data more effectively. Participants will learn about current models, tools and techniques for tracking student progress, and identifying strengths and weaknesses in the standards-based classroom. Special emphasis will be placed on using data analysis for planning instruction, including data gathering and analysis simulations. Best practices in gathering and reporting standards and traditional data will be examined. Students will learn how to use simple, free or inexpensive software tools to collect and analyze student data. Instruction will consist of web-based interactive topic modules with readings and reflective activities, data analysis simulations, audio and video presentations, and live, instructor-hosted chat sessions.


Differentiated Instruction applies an approach to teaching and learning that gives students multiple options for taking in information, making sense of ideas, and demonstrating what they have learned.


This new statewide course is a partnership between the US DOE Office of Special Education Services' ACCESS Center, and the Bering Strait School District. Delivery methods include live video conference broadcasts from Washington, DC and Unalakleet, Alaska. Assignments, resources and assessments will utilize the Teachers4School eLearning Portal.

As educators attempt to include students with disabilities in the general education classroom, the practice of pairing a special educator with a regular educator in a single classroom is becoming increasingly popular. The target audience for this course includes both regular and special education teachers learning more about strategies for collaborative instruction.

This course will explore Collaborative Teaching, a model which allows educators to pool their strengths and talents to enhance the learning of an increasingly diverse student population in an instructionally powerful learning environment.
