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.
You might also be interested in THE BEST RESOURCES ON CLASS INSTRUCTION IN 2019 – PART ONE.
Here are this week’s picks:
Ensuring students respond to feedback: Responsive Teaching 2019 update is from Improving Teaching. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning How To Best Give Feedback To Students.
Teach the Techniques of Media Manipulators appeared in Middleweb. I’m adding it to The Best Tools & Lessons For Teaching Information Literacy – Help Me Find More.
The best way to learn is taking a mixed up approach to practice is from Quartz, and is about the concept of interleaving. I’d still love to hear from anyone who’s using it in an ELL class.
Best Practices for Designing Accessible Performance Assessments is from The Learning Policy Institute. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Performance Assessment.
Exit tickets: Responsive Teaching 2019 update – encapsulating tasks and retention is from Improving Teaching.
Isn’t Independent Reading a Research-Based Practice? is from Timothy Shanahan. I have a great deal of respect for his work, though disagree on much of his criticism about independent reading at school (see The Best Resources Documenting The Effectiveness of Free Voluntary Reading). In this post, he continues his criticism of independent reading at school. The reason I’m sharing it here, though, is near the end of the post he talks about efforts to encourage students to read at home, and that’s worth reading.
