How to use Mindful Teaching Pro
Mindful Teaching Pro is an online offering, available anytime, anywhere. Best practice methods for offering lessons from Mindful Teaching Pro include whole group instruction, self-directed individual study or a combination of both whole group and self-directed.
Whole Group Instruction
Whole group instruction refers to an instructor-led environment, generally within the confines of a traditional 4-wall classroom. The instructor presents the information using available support materials for delivery of the information while students take notes, participate in discussion and complete Learning Connections (exercises, assignments) and assessments under the direct supervision of the instructor.
Self-Directed Individual Study
Self-directed individual study involves placing the responsibility for gaining information on the shoulders of the student. A checklist or map of the course is offered to guide the sequence or order of learning. Students access the support materials and complete Learning Connections (exercises, assignments) and assessments on their own.
Combination of Whole Group Instruction and Self-Directed Individual Study
A combination of whole group instruction and self-directed individual study refers to assigning a portion of lessons to each category. For example, you might choose to have students study lessons related to how the brain learns on their own and participate in whole group instruction for the remainder of the lessons.
