Elementary teaching methods courses

Teachers are tasked with the important responsibility of guiding their students towards academic excellence. This requires a deep understanding of teaching methods, including the ability to match each student’s needs to the curriculum being taught. It also requires continued education to stay ahead of developments in teaching methods.

Our classes are designed to guide you through important topics like instructional practices for remedial mathematics, enhancing reading comprehension and how to construct and carry out performance assessments.

Taking elementary teaching methods courses helps you broaden your knowledge and develop new tools as an educator. They might also help you meet certain criteria for potential recertification, endorsements and professional development.
