Overview

What You Will Learn

  • How to teach students while taking into account their unique learning styles. The guiding principle of NLU instructional methods is based on constructivist philosophy: that learning is an active social process and teachers are the facilitators in that process.
  • Best practices in the classroom, and how to apply appropriate teaching methods to language arts, reading, math, social studies, sciences and health and physical education.
