Question:

How do I study for a vocabulary test?

Taylor L.

Great question! I like to start by making flash cards. Let's make some flash cards together. We're going to make physical flashcards that you can move around your room; you can use index cards or fold and cut or tear paper into card-like sections. After you make your physical flash cards, I want you to place them around the room; put them in significant places so you can tie the object that you've placed them on in your working memory. Use a definition list and read it out loud to yourself; then look for the vocabulary word that matches the definition. Take a mental note of the object you placed that card on so during your exam you can think back to the object and word.

Question:

What is the best way to effectively teach a learner a new concept?

Taylor L.

When we're teaching a new concept to a student who may be unfamiliar with what they're learning, we always want to focus on the "I do... we do... you do" method. What that basically means, is this: as the teacher, I'm going to introduce a standard. I'm going to write it on the whiteboard. I'm going to walk you through the steps, one-by-one, of how to do this new thing. You're going to see it from start to finish. Then, we're going to work on the same standard - but a different question - together. I'm going to serve as a scaffold for you. I'm going to hold your hand through the process. There will be a little bit of you taking the reins but a lot of support from me. Lastly, you're going to do this independently. This allows me to assess what you now know and determine whether you've mastered the standard or whether I need to come back and re-teach; or what specific pieces of the lesson need to be retaught.
