Read the attached file from page 46 to 71 then answer the following questions:
1- LEARNING SKILLS
Of all the learning skills that Weimer lists, which ones do you think are most necessary for YOUR students? Why?
How do we balance the curriculum between these skills and content subject matter?
2- CONTENT COVERAGE VS UN-COVERAGE
How much content is enough? With all the pressure to cover everything in state and federal standards, where and how do we draw the line? Who should decide what content gets ‘covered’? Does it need to be the same in every classroom and in every state and city?
3-LEARNING LOG IDEA
The example syllabus in Appendix One shows a Learning Log as a big component of Weimer’s communications course. What do you think of this idea? Would it work in your teaching? How?
