Imagine the questions Joe might have. Would he be paid for his efforts? How might he apply this experience to his current goals at the orchard?
Discussion: Classroom Techniques Reflect on the Grand City Case scenarios, especially with regard to Joe. Joe has gained the attention of the instructor because of how well Joe helps the other students with computer problems. His instructor asked Joe if he would be interested in instructing other adult students in how to use computer applications. The opportunity for Joe to strengthen his leadership and mentoring skills might be helpful as part of his management training for a promotion at the orchard where he currently works. Imagine the questions Joe might have. Would he be paid for his efforts? How might he apply this experience to his current goals at the orchard? Most importantly, Joe must consider the techniques he should use in his classroom and the challenges he must overcome to best assist other adult learners. To prepare: Review the Learning Resources for this week Consider your own potential classroom techniques Review the scenarios of Joe and Katie from the One-Stop Community Education Center Imagine the classroom techniques Joe might use in his classroom By Day 3 Post an explanation of the classroom techniques you believe would be most effective. Explain your reasons. Analyze potential challenges related to your classroom techniques and explain how you might address those challenges. Be sure to support your ideas by connecting them to the week’s Learning Resources, or something you have read, heard, seen, or experienced.
