Creating Academic SuccessTeaching and Learning Strategies that Work : Barbara A. Guillory-Bieniemy, M.A., NBCT Creating Academic SuccessTeaching and Learning Strategies that Work Slide 2: Teaching strategies: are methods used during teaching which allow the students to effectively learn the information being taught. Learning strategies: are set of skills students use to master content and complete a given task. Strategies are determined based on student weaknesses and strengths. The Teachers’ Role in Facilitating Effective Strategies: : Teacher must know the students they teach (weakness, strength, interest, modifications, etc.). Teacher must believe that all students have the ability to learn information. Teacher must have content knowledge (teacher must know information being taught). Teacher must be prepared and organized at all times. Teacher must understand what is meant by being an educational facilitator. Teacher must be willing to put in the time to work each strategy correctly. The Teachers’ Role in Facilitating Effective Strategies: The purpose of using effective teaching strategies: : Students learn when they are actively engaged (talking, listening, writing, thinking, drawing, and doing). Using the proper teaching and learning strategies help teachers to meet students where they are and move them forward. The proper teaching strategies include students in their academic progress Using the proper teaching strategies keep the teacher informed of the next step in the learning/teaching process. Using the proper teaching strategies one create students who are problem solvers, thinker, independent, and responsible. The purpose of using effective teaching strategies: Strategies for teaching math: : Use of graphic organizers Technology Games Cooperative groups Team grouping (use this opportunity as an assessment where one team works against another). Use of Manipulatives Connect information to real life (search for opportunities where information can be applied in real world activity, students need a connection) Journal writing in math (always demand the correct use of math vocabulary) Strategies for teaching math: Other strategies to add to a math class: : Admit and Exit tickets: admit ticket can work as a warm-up activity, as an assessment of what needs to covered, and as a spiraling of previously taught material. The exit ticket can be used to identify what was learned that day. Brainstorming Activities: This can also be used as an assessment of what is already learned. The Gallery Walk: Have groups of students walk around the room with different solutions to problems, or with different explanations to solving problems. Jigsaw Groups: This is where the groups can each take a part and share with the whole, or have each group work at a greater level than the other. K-W-L Chart: what do you know, what do you want to know and what do you need to learn. Think Aloud: this is where teacher ask open ended, probing questions and have students answer aloud, and one must allow time for student to process and provide an answer. (guiding questions to direct students thoughts to problem solving). Think-Pair-Share: Where students share learned information with a partner. Venn Diagrams: Used so that students have a visual of comparison and contrast of information learning. Word Sorts: This activity will aid in the learning of vocabulary, where students sort words according to categories. Other strategies to add to a math class: Problem solving strategies: : Create a table Guess and check Eliminate possibilities Use a formula Draw a picture Find a pattern Simplify the problem Choose an operation Problem solving strategies: Remember when facilitating learning we must do whatever is necessary to engage, challenge, and ensure that students are learning. : Remember when facilitating learning we must do whatever is necessary to engage, challenge, and ensure that students are learning.
