The following is a list of selected teaching strategies modeled in EDTE 221S

  • Wait Time - giving students sufficient time to think and answer a question
  • Gallery Walk - individuals or groups of students complete a task and post their products; students walk around the room to see other students' work
  • CHIP response to a text -
    • C – What challenged you?
    • H – What helped you?
    • I – What inspired you?
    • P – What perplexed you?
  • Interactive lecture - asking students to get involved by stopping the lecture periodically for students to answer questions, discuss with a partner, or do another related activity
  • Analogies - compare/contrast a concept to an image/video/thing - Discuss what is similar and what is different (e.g. comparing curriculum to a chariot race)
  • In-class computer-based task - Students use web-based resources to complete a learning task. A clear task, suggested websites, and a clear end-product are helpful components.
  • Youtube Videos - Show instructional and engaging videos from youtube
  • Student presentations with guided reflection - Students teach and then reflect on the presentation based on pre-established criteria.
  • KWL charts - Supports students' learning from texts - K= What I already know, W = What I want to know, L = What I learned
  • Learning centers with a teacher-led instructional conversation
