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

Five Old School Practices... that will raise student achievement | Annie Murphy Paul | Teaching US History | 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 math Practice - 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.
