About Model Teaching Quick Courses:

Quick Course Logo

Model Teaching Quick Courses are cost-effective, quick PD for teachers with action items, ready-to-go resources, and specific content that gets straight to the point. Our concise, in-depth lessons focus on a narrow topic that provides a holistic presentation of key concepts you can learn and be ready to implement in one hour or less. You can choose to watch the video lesson, read the downloadable article lesson, or both, giving you the flexibility to continue your professional learning in the format of your choice. While perfect for individual learning, these courses are also great for PLCs and other school-related staff development, training, and self-paced online instruction.

This course was really great! I learned a lot about diagnostic assessments, when and how to use them, and how to use assessments to address my students’ gaps and misconceptions etc. Also, it was interesting to learn how to group my students more effectively based on assessment data collected prior to my lessons. I will definitely use the tools provided with the course as well!
