Top 10 Strategies to Use in Your Classroom

A teaching strategy is the method you use to convey information to your students. There may be a particular strategy that works well with your group of students one year that won’t work with your students the next year. Because of this, it’s important to have lots of teaching strategies in your toolbox. Each week for the next 5 weeks, I will focus on two strategies that might be new to you or one you have forgotten about.


1. MODELING:
After telling students what to do, it’s important to show them exactly how to do it. Regardless of how clear your directions are, it’s a good idea to model how you expect them to complete an assignment, so they understand exactly what they’re supposed to do. This will be especially helpful for your students who are visual learners.


2. ACTIVATING STRATEGY:

An activating strategy is something that gets students actively thinking or making a connection with the material being presented that day. Make a connection to the content or to the outside world to see how much the students already know or remember.


You can use video clips. Students love it when they see their favorite show, character or artist. Initially, they don't know what they're about to learn so they focus on that video clip. Then use that engagement to link to the lesson and the students realize that their likes or interests can channel a learning experience.
