Classroom Support

Many of us were trained in instructional delivery strategies that are different from what students need today. Students in the 21st century require strategies from their teachers that include arranging students in collaborative groups, encouraging inquiry, developing project-based learning activities, including constructivist theory, and adopting student-centered classrooms. Each school needs an on-site support teacher or mentor with curriculum expertise who:

  • Provides training on pedagogy, classroom management, and technology integration
  • Provides lab and classroom curriculum support
  • Locates curriculum resources
  • Does not teach scheduled classes full-time
  • Works with teachers in their classroom
