Each session of The Learning Classroom generally concentrates on a single learning theory and describes how it might be applied in a classroom. We all know that teaching is much more complicated than that, because learning theories overlap and work together. The Learning Challenges here will help you integrate the ideas presented across different sessions.

We have selected a series of scenes from the video programs that can be looked at through different "lenses" of learning theory. For each of the scenes, we have provided a number of "tools" to guide your learning:

  1. Suggested writing assignments for reflecting on the scenarios and analyzing them in light of learning theories.
  2. Sample forms in Word and PDF formats to help organize the task.
  3. A sample of a completed writing assignment in PDF format from one of the scenarios.
  4. Suggested rubrics in html and PDF formats to assess your own writings.
