Free Webinars This Month on Incorporating CKT in Elementary Teacher Prep
This month, AACTE will host free webinars on incorporating content knowledge for teaching (CKT) into education course work, presented by experts from TeachingWorks (University of Michigan) and ETS® Educator Series (Educational Testing Service). Please join us March 29 for a focus on elementary English/language arts CKT and/or March 30 for elementary mathematics.
In each hourlong event, you’ll hear about and discuss approaches that can be used to engage preservice teachers with the kinds of content problems they are likely to encounter during their work as a teacher, such as in –
- Selecting appropriate content tasks or materials for a particular instructional goal
- Interpreting students’ work to identify their thinking or possible misconceptions
- Selecting a representation to use when introducing a concept from the curriculum to the class
Presenters will share resources that can be used to help preservice teachers work on and learn about the types of content knowledge used in teaching.
