Putting Students on the Path to Learning - The Case for Fully Guided Instruction

"Decades of research clearly demonstrate that for novices direct, explicit instruction is more effective and more efficient that partial guidance. ..Small group and independent problems and projects can be effective – not as vehicles for making discoveries, but as a means of practicing recently learned content and skills..."

Project-based learning is so powerful. As a 4th grade teacher and future school counselor, this is something I love seeing in action!! My class has done Genius Hour the past few years and the kids LOVE it. This allows them to explore a passion, work in teams, as well as, individually, and be assessed on their project by presenting what they have discovered. http://www.geniushour.com/

I think this sounds like a great idea; I am interested to hear why your school had a negative reaction to it, Jordan. It seems like a great way to help students discover the ways in which they work best and give the an opportunity to use the skills that perhaps during the rest of the school day they are unable to use.

Principles of Instruction - Research Based Strategies All Teachers Should Know.pdf

"This article presents 10 research-based principles of instruction, along with suggestions for classroom practice. These principles come from three sources: (a) research in cognitive science, (b) research on master teachers, and (c) research on cognitive supports…The fact that the instructional ideas from three different sources supplement and complement each others gives us faith in the validity of these findings."

Although these ideas may not be new they are discussed in detail, potentially providing some new insights:

* Begin each lesson with a short review of previous learning,
* Present new material in small steps with student practice after each step,
* Ask a large number of questions and check the response of all students,
* Provide models,
* Guide student practice,
* Check for student understanding,
* Obtain a high success rate,
* Provide scaffolds for difficult tasks,
* Require and monitor independent practice,
* Engage students in weekly and monthly review.

Vocabulary Instructional Strategies: Marzano's 6-Step Process

Vocabulary Instructional Strategies: Marzano's 6-Step Process | Learning for Life | Scoop.it

"Effective vocabulary instruction is a key foundation to helping students acquire a wide and diverse vocabulary. Students need both direct and indirect instruction in vocabulary and word meanings as well as multiple exposures to words. It is through multiple exposures and repetition that students begin to understand the nuances of words and how to use them when speaking and writing."

Déplacement de paradigme et les méthodes pédagogiques appropriées. 

Susanna Lavialle's curator insight, March 25, 2016 5:14 PM
We often tend to carry on with our typical teaching methods, and sometimes believe that the trainer needs to stay in charge of the learning event. It can be useful to check out this list... stop and evaluate the different options out there that shift the weight from teacher to learner. Surely there is a part of the learning objective that could be covered better through a learner centered approach.
Philip Smith's curator insight, August 5, 2016 8:44 AM

Not all learner-centered methods involve group work. Here are some other ideas.
