Whether in a welding lab or a bioscience lab, effective demonstrations are crucial. In this course, teachers will engage in the four-step demonstration method, which gradually transitions the learning of a new skill from teacher to student, through effective modeling, guided instruction and independent practice. If done correctly every student can successfully perform the new skill with little or no frustration, without wasted materials, and attain proficiency in a way that will ensure the whole class progresses at an appropriate pace. An added bonus is that students complete the new skill in a safe and supportive environment. Come and learn this four-part demonstration method!
