Course Guiding Question:

When and how should I incorporate checks for understanding into my daily lesson plans in order to ensure student success?

What You Will Learn In This Course:

  • CFU activities need to be incorporated before teaching new content, during the actual lesson, and at the end of the lesson.
  • CFU activities can be verbal, written, or consist of a student demonstration.
  • CFU activities may be closed, in which there is one correct answer, or more open-ended where students responses will vary and require higher level thinking skills.
