The Shura Team needs to develop training resources to help teachers transition to being facilitators who help students work in teams to learn cooperatively.
We recognize that doing this is not easy. Many generations of teachers have been trained to concentrate mainly on content delivery to the whole class as a single group. Emphasis is usually placed on individual student performance, not on student team performance.
Our intent is to design "hands-on" experiences where teachers set learning objectives and construct action steps for student teams in their classes.
For example, teachers will be given opportunities to use the ShuraForAll tool to work with "sample" student leaders where the teachers guide them through the process of adopting learning objectives.
If the subject matter is Mathematics, teachers might use the learning objective: Apply number operations and algebraic thinking to help students identify the action steps needed to achieve this objective. The Shura Team would work with teachers to help them accomplish this.
