EOC Survival Guide
A Map for the 3-Hour Tour
Plan the Time
How can you use the 3-hour time frame most effectively? Try one of these scenarios to chunk the time:
- THE STANDBY- Teach three 50-minute lessons with 10-minute brain breaks.
- THE SCHOLARLY SCHEDULE - Chunk a longer lesson like a socratic seminar or lab experience. Plan for transitions at logical breaking points such as between explanation, research, discussion.
- THE TIME-IS-ON-MY-SIDE APPROACH - Explore a new tech idea, project-based experience, or multiple intelligence lesson that you haven’t had time to try.
