Five Old School Practices... that will raise student achievement | Annie Murphy Paul

Five Old School Practices... that will raise student achievement | Annie Murphy Paul | elementary math | Scoop.it
More schools are getting rid of "old-fashioned" skills like penmanship and multiplication tables, but research shows students benefit from classic teaching methods.

 

“the key was taking that old-school method and encouraging students to use their knowledge to practice higher-level thinking skills.”

 

Five Old School Practices

Vocabulary - Research confirms that instruction in word roots allows students to learn new vocabulary and figure out the meaning of words in context more easily.Memorization - Rapid mental retrieval of basic facts is a prerequisite for doing more complex, and more interesting, kinds of mathPractice - The only way to achieve this “automaticity,” so far as anyone has been able to determine, is to practice.Argumentation - Educational research on argumentation demonstrates that it helps students learn better too.Read Aloud - When students are read to frequently by a teacher, their vocabulary and their grasp of syntax and sentence structure improves.

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 24, 2015 6:06 PM

I chose this article because it was a frustrating concept to deal with. Education always seems to contradict itself. "Don't do this, do it this way." "The old way was the wrong way". Continually reinventing the wheel. Read aloud, for example is something that we have been told is a useless waste of time. Simply don't do it. Zero instructional value. Don't have kids memorize things. Its busy work. Practice was described as "drilling". Then an article like this makes me rethink everything.

This website is amazing!  It uses games, pictures, colors, and words to explain multiplication in depth.  It even includes a "More Tips" button, in case the kids need more practice, or the teacher needs a new way to present the material.  You can choose any multiplication fact, too.
