Getting to know the SASsy side of Education

This 3-credit online course will focus upon the The Pennsylvania Standards Aligned System (SAS), a collaborative product of research and good practice that identifies six distinct elements which, if utilized together, will provide schools and districts a common framework for continuous school and district enhancement and improvement. Much research has been conducted as to what makes a great school. There are many intangible components; however, research supports the notion that great schools and school systems tend to have six common elements that ensure Student Achievement: Clear Standards, Fair Assessments, Curriculum Framework, Instruction, Materials & Resources, and Interventions. Participants will also be required to include the integration of 21st century technology skills.  This course delivery will be entirely online and will be differentiated based upon the individual needs of each computer user.  This course is written for any K-12 teachers regardless of their level of knowledge of SAS or their computer expertise since the instructor can differentiate the experience based upon the student expertise level.
