Top 10 Evidence Based Teaching Strategies
Most teachers care about their students’ results. If you are reading this article, you are undoubtedly one of them. There is no doubt that teachers make a difference to how well their kids do at school. However, when you explore the thousands of research studies1 on the topic, it is apparent that some teaching strategies have far more impact than other teaching strategies do. Evidence Based Teaching Strategies Research shows that evidence based teaching strategies are likely to have the largest impact on student results. I wrote this article because you (and other teachers) have far too many demands on your time to sift through decades worth of research. For teaching strategies to be included on this list, they had to: Be supported by hard research, instead of anecdotal case studies or untested theoriesHave a substantially higher effect on student results than other teaching strategiesBe able to be used on a wide range of subjects and in every year level Want to know more?

Implementation of Mastery Learning in Nursing Education Mastery learning, also known as outcomes-based and competency-based education, has been successfully used in various disciplines to ensure student success. In general, the method promotes student success on the basis of preset criteria. These criteria are not based solely on students’ academic ability but allow for flexibility in instruction and content. Mastery learning can thus be an integral component of a nursing program that admits diverse students. Mastery learning can enhance the academic performance of diverse students despite differences such as geographic location or ethnic and racial group. Because of its various components, mastery learning can be adapted for use in many disciplines.

Teacher Student Relationships Crucial to Results Strong teacher student relationships are crucial. To a large extent, the nature of your relationship with your students dictates the impact that you have on them. If you want to have a positive and lasting difference on your kids, you need to forge productive teacher student relationships. edutopia Patricia Chen, a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford and the lead author of the study, says she often had students coming to her lamenting their poor test scores. "Many students have come to me after their exams trying to understand why they did not do as well as they had expected, despite their hard work,” she recalls. She suspected that the issue was that they lacked awareness of how ill-prepared they were—metacognitive awareness—and that led to the unexpectedly low scores.

ON LIBRARIES: Why Librarians – Hilda K. Weisburg Tight budgets have given rise to administrators wondering why they need librarians. Too often they decide librarians aren’t really necessary. We know otherwise, and if we want to change that mindset we need to speak out where the power stakeholders can hear us. A few days ago I was contacted by a librarian who was going to be speaking to a county superintendents’ meeting. She had fifteen minutes to answer that question. It was a wonderful opportunity and somewhat intimidating at the same time. Top 10 Behaviour Management Strategies Most teachers are not surprised to learn that successful behaviour management is crucial to both students’ success and to their own sanity. However, you may not be sure which behaviour management strategies have the most impact. When behaviour management is talked about in many schools, the conversation focuses on the:

Protect Your Kids From Failure Here’s what we learn from psychology: What’s most reliably associated with success are prior experiences with success, not with failure. Although there are exceptions, the most likely consequence of having failed at something is that a child will come to see himself as lacking competence. And the result of that belief is apt to be more failure. All else being equal, a student who gets a zero is far more likely to give up (and perhaps act up) than to try harder. We may wish that a child who can’t seem to get on base, or spit out a list of facts from memory during a test, or coax anything more than a hideous shriek from his violin will react by squaring his shoulders, reciting the mantra of The Little Engine That Could, and redoubling his efforts until, gosh darn it, he turns things around. But wishing doesn’t make it true.
