What tool is critical in teaching writing?
An organizer is an effective tool to teach writing at all levels. It provides a place for students to brainstorm their thoughts and ideas, and then organize those ideas in a way that will provide the reader with what they are looking for. Creating the organizer is where the teaching comes in first. The organizer should be based on the purpose of the writing task and simple to create.
Subject: Basic Math
How can math be relevant to students lives?
Often times you hear students comment that they will not need to know certain math concepts in their adult lives. Show them that is not true. Teach fractions with recipes. Teach decimals and percent's through shopping. Teach geometry by building a box or shelf. Find ways to give meaning to the math they are learning.
Subject: Early Childhood Education
How can teachers support students academically as well as social/emotionally?
Creating connections is important in any instructional setting. It is important to create a connection between the concepts being taught and the learner's interests. It is also important to build and connection between teacher and student. When students (of all ages) are surrounded by people who listen, empower, and challenge them, they will be more engaged, motivated, and successful. They will believe in their abilities if they know you believe in them too!
