Full course description

Teachers spend their days focused on helping their students develop skills in reading, writing, math, science and social studies.  Schools collect and analyze data to drive instruction, revamp curriculum, address individual learning needs, and challenge high achievers.  While these are essential to our students’ education, we often overlook the development of life skills that are most important in developing accomplished students and members of society.  These skills include integrity, work ethic, communication, setting and achieving goals, having a positive attitude, and overcoming challenges, to name a few.  In this course, educators will learn the importance of teaching these skills and how to better incorporate them into their daily lessons. This professional development activity is aligned to the ISTE Standards and to the CPS Framework for Teaching Components:  1b, 2a and 2d.
