Hickory, NC (PRWEB) August 18, 2015
A new online course, Effective Substitute Teacher Training (http://www.app-gardenuniversity.com/#!effectivesub/crqp), prepares substitute teachers to be more effective in the classroom. Developed by Cook Consulting (http://app-garden.com/), experts in technology solutions for school administrators, the course provides essential skills at less than half the cost of equivalent community college courses.
Accessing the Effective Substitute Teacher Training course online whenever it is most convenient, substitute teachers acquire the educational theory and practical skills they need to effectively teach a classroom of students when the regular teacher is away. They become more competent, more confident, and more likely to be called for assignments.
For school districts offering the Effective Substitute Teacher Training course, they can expand the available pool of trained, well-qualified substitute teachers. The course fee is paid for by substitute teachers themselves, so that the school district incurs no training costs.
Substitutes Learn Educational Theory and Practical Skills from Experienced Teachers
The Effective Substitute Teacher Training course is modeled after the professional teacher training curriculum taught in community colleges.
During the 8-10 hour online course, substitute teachers cover Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences, Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy, and Marzano’s Dimensions of Learning, building a solid foundation to understand the developmental characteristics of students in preschool, elementary, middle, and high school.
Substitute teachers also learn practical skills on lesson plan preparation, classroom management, behavior and discipline skills, and tips & tricks helpful to a successful substitute. The instruction includes videos of experienced teachers sharing valuable insights and helpful tips.
Complements Substitute Teacher Training on Policies and Procedures
The Effective Substitute Training course complements the Virtual Substitute Teacher Training course (http://www.app-gardenuniversity.com/), also offered online in the App-Garden University. The Virtual Substitute Teacher Training provides substitutes with the required instruction on each district’s health and safety procedures, saving school districts many hours and thousands of dollars per year in training costs.
