Notes from the Tch Laureates

As a middle school STEM teacher, one of the most essential pieces to any lesson is the “hook.” If I’m going to get students to buy into my lesson, I need to get them excited so they engage, keep an open mind, and understand the practical application of the classroom content. It doesn’t take much to impress, but it’s important to set the tone.

As we head into the last month of 2016, Teaching Channel is highlighting some of your favorite teaching strategies. These include blogs that not only focus on the diverse ways in which teachers introduce their material, but also on ways teachers choose to manage their classes throughout the instructional process. This week’s videos show an engaging method to get younger students up and moving while working on their gross motor skills, impactful assessment with middle school students, and strategies for creating high level, student-led discourse in the high school classroom.

On a side note, if you’re heading to Learning Forward, make sure to stop by Teaching Channel for a PoP giveaway and consultation on creating #anewkindofPD! We look forward to seeing you!
