Teaching Strategies for Elementary and Secondary Students

This week, we wanted to share segments from our newest PD 360 program—Teaching Strategies.

Elementary: This strategy for elementary students is demonstrated by two school teachers using mail, or letters to the class, to introduce the learning target of a math lesson. The letters appeal to the students' imagination and create a setting for problem-based math instruction.

Secondary: This strategy for secondary students is demonstrated by twelfth grade teacher Christy Reasons at Germantown High School in Shelby County, Tennessee, helping her students analyze an excerpt from Ralph Waldo Emerson's essay "Society and Solitude." Using the RATE method, students read, annotate, and think about the text. They then "encode," or explain their understanding of and connections to the text, as they discuss it in groups.
