Each week, I publish a post or two containing three or four particularly useful resources on classroom instruction, and you can see them all here.
Here are this week’s picks:
A journey of a thousand miles… how can we help students begin? is from Harry Fletcher-Wood and is very good. It goes along with other posts I’ve written about the “Zeigarnik Effect.”
Use this study guide with your students ahead of the U.S-North Korea summit is from the PBS NewsHour. I’m adding it to A Beginning List Of The Best Resources For Teaching & Learning About The North Korea Missile Crisis.
USING QUESTIONS TO ENGAGE STUDENTS IN LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT is from Scott Reed (Thanks to Cara Jackson for the tip). I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles About Asking Good Questions — Help Me Find More.
How should students revise? A brief guide is from Carl Hendrick. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Helping Students Learn How Best To Study.
This tweet shares an important point:
Interleaving often misunderstood. It doesn’t operate at a macro level -History, French, Maths which emerges from spacing revision sessions.
It means, within a subject engage the ‘desirable difficulty’ of switching between topics or question types supporting deeper connections.

“The best experiences I’ve had in classes… are co-constructed in dialogue between students and teachers. They’re co-constructed. It’s you and me; building an experience together.” @ddmeyer
