The Big List of Class Discussion Strategies Listen to this article as a podcast episode: Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 38:22 — 53.1MB) Subscribe: iTunes | Android | When I worked with student teachers on developing effective lesson plans, one thing I always asked them to revise was the phrase “We will discuss.” We will discuss the video. We will discuss the story. Multiple Intelligence - Learning and Child Development 1. Linguistic and Verbal Intelligence: Verbal-linguistic children love to vocalize words and ideas verbally and mainly use this method of communication to express their way of thinking and solving problems. They are good writers (who communicate more effectively through writing), good speakers (who use words and language effectively to persuade, argue, entertain, and/or teach others.

Google Maps Now Allows You to Measure Exact Distances Google rolled out a small but significant update to Google Maps Tuesday, which allows you to measure the exact distance between two or more points on a map. The search giant announced the new feature — currently limited to the desktop version of Maps — in a post on its Google+ page. Previously, Google Maps displayed distances when you searched for directions, but it would only tell you the distance along the planned route — not the exact distance between the starting and final destinations. For example, you might search for directions to a restaurant that's exactly 3 miles away (if you draw a straight line), but the route Google provides for driving directions might actually be 3.5 miles.

DIY Fidgets You Can Make On a Budget for Your Classroom Kids and adults alike have always needed to fidget, some more than others. There used to be an expectation that students sit up straight and still for long periods of time in class. But now the idea of doodling, using sketch notes in the classroom, and even fidgeting are much more accepted and promoted. Sometimes fidgeting is even encouraged and supported. You can find many fidget toys on the market, but what if you’re a teacher on a budget? We’ve got you covered with these DIY fidgets. The Other Pair This ELT lesson plan is designed around a short film by Sarah Zorik titled The Other Pair and the themes of altruism and empathy. Students watch a short film, write a story, and speak about a story. I would ask all teachers who use Film English to consider buying my book Film in Action as the royalties which I receive from sales help to keep the website completely free. Language level: Pre-intermediate (A2) –Intermediate (B1)

Learning Menus - Prescription for Gifted Success Learning Menus Learning menus (also known as choice boards, tic-tac-toe boards, etc.) are a gifted strategy that allows students to make a choice about how they will learn. Many learning menus are based off of Dr. Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences. This theory categorizes learning into 8 different intelligences: bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, verbal-linguistic, logical-mathematical, naturalistic, intrapersonal, visual-spatial, and musical.

What is a good neighbour? What is the worst thing parents can do to their children? Purposeful Annotation: A "Close Reading" Strategy that Makes Sense to My Students - Dave Stuart Jr. If you look at my original close reading post, you'll see I was basically using the phrase “close reading” to refer to annotation. It took me a year or more to realize that I was saying one buzzwordy thing to mean a lot of explicit, less confusing things that readers do when grappling with a text. I blame my error on allowing myself to get sucked into the unfortunate vortex that was the buzzwordification of close reading. If you’re new to the blog, though, keep in mind that while I do try not to take the educational establishment too terribly seriously (instead opting to occasionally poke fun at us), when it comes to helping students flourish in the long-term, I’m dead serious.

6 Steps Towards A More Personal Classroom 4 Steps Towards A More Personal Classroom by Linda Pruett Personalized learning is a key to transforming education. What is personalized learning? It is meeting the kids where they are – and then helping them grow in their strengths, and better see themselves. It’s finding out where each student’s interests lie, challenging them to grow in their individual interests, and then celebrating their growth! It’s only natural. After all, they are trying to talk in a language they are still working on learning. Still, silence can be deadly in the ESL classroom for your students and you. When you want to get your students to speak up, try one of these fun and simple games to get them talking in class. 1This is How We RollYou can use this simple game as a get to know you at the start of school or later as a get to know you better activity. All you need is one standard die and six questions – either ice breakers or ones that elicit opinions, experience or other personal thoughts.
