Course Description

The reluctant learner is one of the most challenging students a teacher can face in their classroom. The student’s struggle or decision not to be engaged in the learning process cannot only impact their success in the classroom, but that of the other students as well.  In this course we will examine the various factors that can cause a student not to engaged and provide specific 4 -step model fro have this student be successful in your classroom. While the reluctant learner can present a challenge for the teacher, understanding the factors that cause that disengagement and having strategies to address each of those factors can made a significant impact on the student’s success in the classroom.


This course consists of 4 modules. Each module has a Powerpoint presentation that you will watch and then complete the accompanying worksheets.

You can choose to have each module sent to you as you complete it, or we can send you all of the modules at the same time. 

You will have up to 6 months to complete the class. Credit for the class can’t be granted sooner than one month after registering even if you complete all the modules before that time.

Once you have completed the class, you will receive an email from the University of Massachusetts Global with your student account. It will have a login and password for you to be able to access your grades and request a transcript.

If you have any questions or concerns as you view the PowerPoints and complete the written work, please contact Emily LoVerde Berchier at:
