During this session, McREL's Classroom Instruction That Works gives educators a clear, consistent approach to instruction, providing recommendations and tools for developing stronger lesson plans, effective classroom delivery, and a common vocabulary for teaching and sharing of best practices across schools and districts.
Good teachers know what to do. Great ones know why and when to use certain instruction strategies for best effect—and they know how to adapt lessons and learning activities to match the specific needs of their students. The theoretical and scientific breakthroughs that made Learning That Sticks (Goodwin, Gibson, & Rouleau, 2020) possible can help any teacher guide student learning with unique precision.
Teaching students how to improve their writing helps students increase comprehension and content knowledge. During this session participants will learn strategies and activities to use in all grades and content areas to help students improve their writing. Participants will also learn how to use writing instruction and assignments as a learning activity.
