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 INSTRUCTION IN 2021 – PART ONE.
Here are this week’s picks:
Lesson of the Day: ‘An Intimate Look at Mexico’s Indigenous Seri People’ is from The NY Times Learning Network. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For International Day Of The World’s Indigenous People.
How to Provide Effective Reading Instruction is a new report by Timothy Shanahan and published by The World Bank. I’m adding it to The Best Posts On Reading Strategies & Comprehension – Help Me Find More! , The Best Posts About Value Of Oral Reading In Partners For ELLs & Others and to The Best Resources On Reading Fluency (Including How To Measure It).
I’m adding this tweet to Best Posts On Writing Instruction and to The Best Resources For Learning How To Best Give Feedback To Students:
