Theme:  Choose to Teach Simply, So Learners May Simply Learn.

Abstract: Teachers match a path of choices learners use while learning with active ingredients of learning to which learners likely choose to learn  lessons teachers offer. This guide includes practical suggestions, useful tools, and a cohesive and flexible approach to matching teaching with learning.


ALV FOR TEACHERS describes a path of choices teachers may take as they move toward 1.0 Teaching, that is, toward teaching that results in everyone learning everything a teacher teaches.
