About the Course

This course is a book study of Robyn Jackson’s book Never Work Harder Than Your Students and Other Principles of Great Teaching. “The master teacher mindset is really a disposition toward teaching. It is a way of thinking about instruction, about students, about learning, and about teaching in general that makes teaching fluid, efficient, and effective.” Six principles of mastery teaching will be discussed and applied during this book study. Those principles are:

  • Master teachers start where their students are.
  • Master teachers know where their students are going.
  • Master teachers expect to get their students to their goal.
  • Master teachers support their students along the way.
  • Master teachers use feedback to help them and their students get better.
  • Master teachers focus on quality rather than quantity.
  • Master teachers never work harder than their students.

Required Text:

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Reflect upon their current teaching practice and implement plans for growth.
  • Learn how to apply the master teacher principles effectively.
  • Implement plans for professional growth.

This class, and the book, contain so much information that I can readily use in my classes this fall. The class was full of strategies that make sense and that will encourage students to think for themselves and learn more in the process.
Tamara Walter
The book is filled with practical strategies to apply immediately to your classroom and improve your pedagogy. Although some of the information is not new, there are enough insightful perspectives that anyone could find something for themselves. The format of the class (definitely 2 credits worth of work) with discussions, responses, and assignments of planning your classroom work using the tools in the book, made the best of independent work with collaboration as needed.

I learned so much from this course! As described, it requires time to read the book and reflect but I think it really helped me to think about my current practices and how I can better myself and my students. The tools at the end of the course really help put ideas into actionable plans. I would strongly recommend this course!
