Bransford, Darling-Hammond, & Lepage Clear Expectations Working the Room Encouraging Communication Clear Organized Plan (2005) Principles of Learning and Teaching

(adapted from Newcomb, McCracken, Warmbrod, & Whittington, 2004) Must possess meaning, organization and structure

Readiness is a prerequisite for learning Must be motivated to learn Students will rise to the level of expectation Success is a motivating force Must be provided with knowledge of their progress Reinforced behaviors are more likely to be learned Directed learning is more effective than undirected Inquire into subject matter versus being instructed in Students learn what they practice Charlotte Danielsons FRAMEWORK FOR TEACHING Teaching Effectively:

SAIIRS RS Simplicity makes ideas stick Keep your teaching lean and focused (Heath & Heath, 2. Unexpected Begin with a question Let your lesson unfold like the plot of a mystery novel Make your students curious

Huh? Ah Ha! Unexpected ideas and questions create a knowledge gap They indicate the destination but may not tell you (Heath & Heath, 3. Concrete Jane Elliot Often times concepts seem abstract, perhaps even mysterious Seek to make them concretereal life

Concrete items are more easily remembered How can/do we do this in our own classrooms? (Heath & Heath, 4. Credible For any idea to stick it needs to be credible Seek ways to address students skepticism Sometimes students need to see it to believe it What do we teach that might make students skeptical?

(Heath & Heath, 5. Emotion Emotion builds student engagement Do we teach topics that elicit emotions? Make the topic hit students in the gutor the heart! (Heath & Heath, 6. Story How many of you have ever told a story when working with a group of students?

What happened? Studentspeople in generallove a good story Heck, we love a bad story! Mental stimulation While not as good as actually doing something, mental stimulation (imagining/thinking about something) may be the next best thing (Heath & Heath, Teaching That Sticks 1. 2.
