PIRATE: Engaging Lessons Course Through Ashland University


Are you in need of graduate credits to renew your license?  Do you want to read a REALLY good book? Would you like to combine the two?

I will be hosting an online book study (“Teach Like a Pirate” by Dave Burgess) through Ashland University starting January 7, 2018, and going through March 25, 2018.  The cost of the 1-credit hour course is $278.  Over the twelve-week course, teachers will read small parts of the book and then get together on Sunday evenings (7 PM – 8 PM EST) for a discussion over the weeks material.

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This book study course will read “Teach Like a Pirate” by Dave Burgess.  This book will examine transforming lessons using the ideas laid out by Mr. Burgess while inspiring teachers to rekindle their passion for education.  Over the twelve week program, participants will have group discussions regarding the topics throughout the book, including what it means to “Teach Like a Pirate” (don’t worry it’s an anagram), and how to set hooks to capture student attention.  Upon completion of the course, teachers will be rejuvenated and ready to transform their classroom into a place where students want to come every day.
