Effective Teaching Strategies

Dorothy Said:

Effective Teaching Strategies for Math???

We Answered:

Base it on something more tangible and familiar to him.

Sometimes people can think in money when they can't in abstract number. Or sweets (I have known some travellers children /Romanies where the money works and they have an understanding way above what you'd expect)

Or even start with football teams and leagues, who wins the match based on their scores.

Or use a balance and weights.

The basis has to be with something that is most familiar to him. does he come from a large family (sometimes younger children get by without basics as older siblings interpret etc for them). If he did, you could do things like ask him to set a table for them all, and then count the plates in a pile as well as out on the table etc.

Or if he is into sports, perhaps look at records, their times, distances of races. he has to have a sense of number before he can use those numbers more abstractly.

Nicole Said:

Is 'differentiating work' an example of an 'effective teaching' strategy?

We Answered:

not really, teaching strategy means what do you actually do that promotes learning, e.g. using open ended questions, promoting discussion, giving the children thinking time before accepting an answer

learning strategies are what the children do to help themselves e.g. picking out and writing down key words, drawing a concept map to sort their ideas, re-reading questions

What is meant by an effective teaching strategy?

We Answered:

A teaching strategy is a way a person goes about teaching something. If they take a direct approach and lecture about something or maybe by making experimental. An effective teaching strategy is if the way the subject was taught, if the students learned what was taught. It's effective if the students are actively participating and learning.

Danielle Said:

What are 5 research-based and effective teaching strategies or programs used for teaching special ed. student?

We Answered:

Direct Instruction in small groups for initial mastery. This includes includes teacher signaling, choral responding, guided and independent practice, corrective feedback, and reinforcement. (Becker, 1977). This approach is said to promote high rates of academic engaged time and increases the amount of student on-task behavior.

Reciprocal teaching is a cognitive approach to teaching reading to elementary school students. (Palinscar, 1986). The purpose of this instructional approach is to develop the cognitive and metacognitive skills required for the comprehension of texts. The model comprises the instructional activities that take place during the dialog between teachers and students regarding segments of text. The dialog is structured around the use of four strategies: summarizing, question generating, clarifying, and predicting. The students take turns assuming the role of teacher in leading this dialog.

Some other best practices according to research are:
Hands-on, active participation
Using visuals
Using pictures to demonstrate steps
Using pre-reading strategies in content areas
Modeling/teacher demonstration
Daily review of learned information

Many special education students have short term and long term memory deficits. In addition, many have underlying receptive and expressive language disorders. For these students, interacting kinesthetically had a highly beneficial benefit.
