Teaching Smarter, Not Harder: 7 Strategies For Performance Teaching

Teaching Smarter, Not Harder: 7 Strategies For Performance Teaching | teaching and learning | 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?"

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 29, 2013 9:34 PM

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!

Audrey's curator insight, December 9, 2013 4:34 PM

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.

In addition there are six that we as teachers should be doing within our classrooms including:

* Integrate critical thinking skills within and across all content areas

* Establish safe, intellectually risk-free learning environments

* Allow time to develop critical thinking skills.

There is also a section called "Your Students' Path to Critical Thinking" that includes 25 recommendations.

The infographic is also available as a pdf file that you may download in an 11" x 17" version at the website.
