This course exposes candidates to a large variety of cognitive learning models and study guides to help classroom students learn specific content through critical thinking skills, problem solving, and collaborative interactions. A study of the theoretical foundations of each model will contribute to an overall understanding of the basis of the models, and the types of optimal learning of each model. Assessments and modifications for the learning models are presented. Candidates will collaborate through small group discussion to compare models, implement models through the creation of group and individual lessons, and critique the learning models and study guides presented in the course.
