A good educator not only teaches their students what to think, but how to think. The procedure of cognitive modeling helps students understand the thinking process involved in solving a specific problem or mastering a skill. In this course, education expert Joyce Juntune shares with educators why cognitive modeling is important and how to implement the four steps of cognitive modeling while teaching any subject.
Education expert Joyce Juntune says that one of the most important things a teacher can do is help their students understand the cognitive processes involved in learning a new skill or solving a problem, but if your instructional demonstrations aren’t clear and precise, your students will be left confused and frustrated.
The way we help students learn how to think is with a procedure called cognitive modeling. When you use cognitive modeling in your classroom instruction, you will give your students the tools they need to deeply understand the material and become independent learners.
After taking this course, you’ll understand what cognitive modeling is and why it’s important for your classroom. You’ll also learn the four steps of cognitive modeling and how to apply them to any subject you teach.
