Model Teaching Skills: How to Develop Rapport, Alliance, & Culturally Competent Teaching Skills with your Students  

Aaron Richmond  (Metropolitan State University of Denver/Psychology and Education)  

Pecos, 1:20 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Research suggests that outside of using varying instructional strategies, the very best teachers (i.e., model teachers) exhibit several exemplary teaching skills. Namely, model teachers possess and use rapport-building strategies, build a learning alliance with their students, and employ culturally-competent teaching skills. For example, model teachers build rapport by using personally relevant examples, increase the learning alliance by getting to know their students, and they are culturally-competent by taking the perspective of their students. Throughout this workshop, we will first discuss examples of these skills, how to implement them, and we will end with a discussion on how to further develop these model teaching skills.
