11 Teaching Strategies For Spotting The Blind Spots In Your Classroom

11 Teaching Strategies For Spotting The Blind Spots In Your Classroom | Differentiation in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"When Stanford Professor Lee Shulman was first enmeshed in the research that led to Board certification of teachers by NBPTS, I asked him – in a hotel bathroom, of all places – what interesting findings were turning up about great teachers as compared to the rest. He replied: 'Well, you might not find this such a big deal, but a big indicator is the degree to which a teacher accurately describes what happens in her classroom.'"

 Great advice from members of the tribe in th e trenches!--Lou

Excerpt:

"Nobody can fully appreciate what it’s like to be a student with dyslexia in the way that another student with dyslexia can.  Tutors, teachers and parents have their advice, but here are some strategies from the real experts—kids with papers due, tests next week, and a project due on Friday.  How do they do it when they are struggling readers themselves?"

Randy Kulman's curator insight, September 6, 2013 2:56 PM

Great suggestions for dyslexai and many executive functioning difficulties.
