Basics of Modeling
I personally really enjoyed this article as I found it to be insightful as well as useful. Often professional development articles similar to this one just tell you why you should or should not use a strategy in your classroom. This article explicitly states how to use it and gives you examples. I also really enjoyed the easy three step process that is easy to remember that I can recall when I am modeling. Modeling has always been something I was sure I would use in the classroom, but after reading this article I am more aware of the benefits. I also see the importance of using it everyday in the classroom from small assignments to larger projects.
How will you use modeling in your future classroom? If you won't why not?
How could you reverse the roles of modeling for teachers and students?
