View the Course Syllabus

Instructor: Ginny Horning ghorning@dominicancaonline.com

Reading books reflectively is important for both students and their teachers. While as teachers we are constantly looking for ways to motivate our students to becoming lifelong readers, we often neglect nurturing that process in ourselves. This course can help you make a commitment to dedicate some of your precious time to focused professional reading. The booklists offer a wide variety of current non-fiction covering not only best practice curriculum guides but books on current educational thought, Common Core techniques, content area information, psychology, special education, classroom management, athletic endeavors, self-improvement and inspiration and other compelling subjects of interest and assistance to teachers. Assignments will include both written reflections and online discussions.

Reflective Reading may be taken for credit multiple times with multiple books. The first registration will be numbered EDUO 9000, the 2nd EDUO 9002, the 3rd EDUO 9003… up to EDUO 9010
