Welcome to EDUO 9762. This class was created as part of a seven course series entitled Teaching Life’s Essentials. The other courses in the series are:
Isn’t it true that great teachers are born not made? We say “not at all”. With the guidance of the courses in this series, you can take your teaching to a new level; one that brings the highest degree of satisfaction to yourself and your students. Great teachers are remembered not for the knowledge they impart but for the way they encourage and lift their students’ achievement, not just in a subject, but in the important skills of living a fulfilling life. These skills of happiness, of inspiration, compassion, curiosity and resilience are essential for both the learner and the teacher. This course will bring research to inform along with techniques and activities to imbue your delivery of required curriculum with the essence of greatness-both yours and your students’.
This course demonstrates that tolerance can best be taught by bringing people together and having them work with each other. Since this isn’t always possible, many materials and resources are presented to help teachers understand and promote fearlessly confronting intolerance, wherever it lies. Teachers are in one of the best places in society to foster tolerance.
