As many districts adopt the New Learning Standards/Common Core they will find Dianne McCune’s materials to be an effective tool. It provides the missing piece of “How” to teach the “What”—the rigorous content and processes now required.
Dr. McCune’s expertise developed out of thirty years in public education. Her students have spanned all grades from pre-school through college, and ranged from inclusive classrooms to special areas of gifted and special education to professional development for teachers.
Dianne’s experience led to doctoral studies where she developed her own interdisciplinary process based on a hybrid of The Bloom Taxonomy of Educational Objectives and The Scientific Method. Her “multi-sensory” approach, reminiscent of the Socratic format of learning through direct experience, is designed to meet the needs of diverse student populations.
McCune’s inquiry approach to teaching is easily incorporated with a variety of curricula. It is readily adaptable to classroom learning as well as extra-curricular activities. As an international literacy consultant, Dr. McCune has benefited by working in international schools and from evaluating other successful teaching approaches used around the world.
Along with theHow2doc.com, Dianne’s ventures in the digital world now include a children’s book “Where’s My Bed?” The Flamingo Said. In addition she continues to teach university courses and literacy workshops through public universities in Ohio.
