Teaching Smarter, Not Harder: 7 Strategies For Performance Teaching

Teaching Smarter, Not Harder: 7 Strategies For Performance Teaching | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"Good teaching is a major undertaking.

Make no mistake–teaching has never been easy. But as we come upon 2014, as a profession teaching is increasingly characterized by its possibility, accountability, and persistent mutation. Which makes it a challenge to do at all, much do well. 

The response to these challenges is a mix of building-level professional development, self-directed teacher improvement, and a troubling amount of teacher burnout. So how can you teacher smarter rather than simply grunting harder?"

Here are seven strategies you might choose to use to make your teacher smarter. They are explained in the post (and listed in the image above). For those whom may see this without the image:

* Place the big rocks first

* Use technology to automate (with suggestions on what you might do)

* Know yourself

* Teach in the moment

* Advocate for yourself

* Find new measures of success

* Open your classroom doors wide

You may find some new ideas to try out in your classroom!

How about asking the student to teach you?  They nearly always come up with something different, which you can add to your own notes.

Students are also great at acting out scenes, particularly when they are organising other students.  Give them a mark for it.  Then test their knowledge a few days later with  a 30 minute test.

How Technology Has Transformed the Classroom (Infographic)

How Technology Has Transformed the Classroom (Infographic) | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"Parents are famous for their ability to reminisce about days gone by. It always starts the same way, “Back when I was your age, we used to walk 10 miles to school barefoot—in the snow.” Or, “I remember when school lunch cost a nickel.”

Thanks to the integration of technology, schools, and classrooms in particular, have changed so dramatically in recent years that some parents might not even recognize them. It’s a classic case of old school versus new school."

This infographic looks at how the integration of technology into schools has made major changes. Learn how many parents used software in school compared to their teenage students; how collaboration has changed; if technology is important to student success (parents view) and much more. If you have an upcoming Open House this might be an infographic that would elicit comments from parents.
