Sometimes you have to unteach students before you can teach them.

High schools tend to reinforce some unfortunate habits: excuse-making, an indifference to deadlines, an overreliance on handholding, and a focus on grades over learning, among other things. Students often carry those behaviors right into college.

You need to unteach those things before you can get down to the real business of teaching subject matter.

Teaching Underprepared Students can show you how. In this five-part Magna Online Course, Brigham Young professors Tyler Griffin and Ken Alford provide a wealth of proven strategies for eliminating bad habits, instilling an appreciation for rigor, and boosting student performance.

This idea-filled course will help you:

  • Establish clear expectations and consequences regarding quality and accountability
  • Encourage students to take ownership of their coursework
  • Build engagement by offering choice in assignments and assessments
  • Develop ways to instill respect for deadlines
  • Give students frames of reference for good and bad work
  • Create an environment that makes students comfortable taking risks in learning

The course is designed for asynchronous learning, so you can dive in right away and pick up where you left off. Access from virtually any device.

You’ll find a wealth of supplemental materials to support the course content, including handouts, full transcripts, readings, and links to online resources. A final check on learning leads to a certificate of completion.

“Thank you. I plan to implement several things learned in this course. Specifically, the SMART Goals worksheet at the beginning of the course as well as at the end.” – Aaron J. Thompson, Faculty

“The Magna Online Course was well presented. Having the hesitation that it was going to be ‘reading and doing’ was deferred when videos and reading encouraged ‘practice-preach’ of the seminar. The resources and downloads provided opportunity to truly “apply and reflect” to address student’s needs in the college environment.”  – Dr. Mary Ward, Faculty
