Free Micro Course: An Exploration Into Effective Planning for the Year

Teaching is truly a practice, and much practice is required to attain the success you are striving for in your classroom. This course is designed to assist you in exploring some of the particularly difficult elements for new (and even seasoned!) educators: classroom and time management. You will dive into strategies and resources designed to answer your questions about these elements of teaching and help you to reflect and improve on your current practices.

In this self-paced exploration, you will build a foundation of understanding on planning your school year. Through the inquiry model, you will create guiding questions, explore resources, document your learning, and formulate next steps. Overall, prepare to spend two to three hours completing this exploration. The printable resources are a great place to record and create a product of your learning and can also be used with your students as you lead them through inquiry projects.

Upon completion of this micro-course, you will receive a certificate from Advancement Courses notating your 3 PD hours earned.

Applicability of professional development hours varies from state to state. Please follow your district or governing body’s approval process to verify acceptance. Though we are an approved provider in MT, NY, PA, and WA, these states require additional PD reporting not available in our micro courses.
