This course will delve into the cognitive underpinnings of Modeling Theory—reading about some of the seminal theories upon which it is based, engage in Modeling discourse and practice discourse management, watch video of Modeling classrooms and make sense of student thinking by watching them whiteboard and listening to them talk with each other.
