Our GOSUB course provides your substitute teachers with the knowledge, strategies and skills needed for success. By completing the course, the teachers will:
Increase their confidence in subbing
Create a positive, supportive and safe classroom environment
Engage and motivate students in learning
Build positive relationships with students and staff
The course is interactive, models best practices, utilizes various media formats to present the content, and includes prompts to reflect and plan for action.
The GOSUB course includes four main modules, each taking an hour or less to complete. Participants can work at their own pace. A very brief fifth module serves as a course wrap up and is part of the estimated four hours of learning.
1 | GO: "Great Day Ahead" and "On Target" are the topics for the first module. By employing the tips given in this module, participants will proactively prepare for success. They will also be reminded of some effective instructional strategies that will help increase motivation and engagement.
2 | Support: Participants will explore how to provide the educational and emotional support needed during a school day.
3 | Understand: Participants will explore understanding from multiple perspectives. Taking time to understand in this learning setting will help them make great choices under pressure.
4 | Be Professional: This module emphasizes the basic principle of professionalism.
5 | Course Wrap Up: Participants will consider applying the most important points of GOSUB.
The GOSUB Canvas course is available for purchase by districts. Districts can publish the course in their own Canvas platforms, so as to be able to personalize the content to meet their needs. The course can be utilized as a traditional course, enrolling the participants and an instructor. Or, the course can be used as a website, with no login required to consume the content. The pricing structure is based on the district's K-12 student enrollment. The district owns the content for three years.
