Elementary, middle, and high school teachers will increase their knowledge of the instructional strategy referred to as Active Student Responses (ASRs). During the course, participants will engage in Professional Learning sessions to gain a better understanding of Active Student Responses, practice the strategy using low and high technologies, collect data, and inform/adjust instruction based on student responses. Teachers will implement the ASR strategy during the opening/closing of lessons using DoDEA’s instructional 20/60/20 model. Prior to the end of the course, participants will present the Professional Learning sessions to classmates to ensure their preparedness to train other educators with implementing ASRs. A course evaluation will also be completed.
This course focuses on Student Excellence by empowering teachers and improving student achievement across contents. Through participating in this course, teachers will support their school’s Continuous School Improvement (CSI) efforts by integrating digital tools to increase student outcomes. The objectives of this course support DoDEA’s Priority and Mission and are aligned to Cognia Accreditation Standards for Quality School systems by improving teaching and learning through implementing the evidence-based practice of Active Student Responding.
