Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 22, 2015 2:58 PM

These strategies are the essential foundation of what all good teachers do.  Every article and book that I have read about school improvement and effective teaching seems for focus on these same strategies.  We know it...but do we do it?  WITH FIDELITY?  I think that is often where it breaks down. These strategies need to be a part of EVERY lesson...EVERY day. They become highly effective when they are implemented consistently and intentionally.  With all teachers are required to do, it is easy to lose focus on intentionally using these effective strategies.

Alfio Gangemi's curator insight, May 24, 2015 8:38 PM

This is probably the best resource I have found for a pre-service and graduate teacher. As the title says it outlines the top ten evidence based teaching strategies and clearly describes each strategy and how and why they are effective. Very useful resource!.

Steve Whitmore's curator insight, May 27, 2015 9:39 AM

Which of these strategies could you incorporate into your therapeutic groups?  How do you think they might be helpful? 

 

When you observe students in classrooms, do you see evidence of these practices?

Wordle - Beautiful Word Clouds

Wordle - Beautiful Word Clouds | English resources | Scoop.it

Wordle has been around for ages and you can find lots of websites that give you ideas how to use it (for example http://goo.gl/2TnGL) What I like about it is that it's so easy to use - copy & paste a text, click 'create' and ta-daaa! - a great visual including your keywords or target vocabulary is ready. Print/save/share friendly, no registration needed.

Vocaroo | Online voice recorder | English resources | Scoop.it

Salena Argar's curator insight, May 15, 2017 11:42 PM

Vocaroo is easy to use and recordings can be shared via social media, email, and blogs. Simply click record and then save, share or retry. This recording tool could be used by teachers to upload into blogs in a similar fashion to podcasts. Students can also use this to practice oral presentations which could then be sent via email to the teacher for feedback.

Phonetics Focus - A Sound Choice | English resources | Scoop.it

Looks like a website for children but IT'S NOT. A great resource for those who want to focus on pron; mini-games, minimal pairs, flashcards, pron chart quizes and even an entry / exit test. There's a mobile app too but I haven't tested it yet.
