California and Colorado Six Unit Summer Workshop (2 weeks!)

EDUO 9790: Teaching for Success

Developed by: Ryan Pickett

Course Overview

Traditionally, student success has been measured by grades and test scores. Studies have shown that these measures are no longer good predictors of success in the workforce. Because it is now common to switch jobs multiple times throughout one’s life, success in the work world requires the perseverance and curiosity needed to consistently learn new job skills. People who can effectively communicate with new colleagues while collaborating to solve problems in creative ways will fare better than those lacking such skills. This class will involve many readings, discussions, and hands-on activities to help you teach for the future success of your students. You will learn how to emphasize the four C’s while fostering the grit and curiosity necessary for your students to live happy and productive lives.
