SLANT: Get Ready to Learn
Lesson Objective: Help students actively participate in class
All Grades / All Subjects / Participation

Thought starters

  1. How does each part of SLANT contribute to student success?
  2. Think about how you could introduce the components of SLANT separately to make the strategy accessible to all students. Ms. Noonan says the SLANT strategy helps students to be college bound. How does it do so?

SLANT is one of the techniques in 'Teach Like a Champion," you can read more about it there. Or look in Youtube for 'Teach Like a Champion' and Uncommon Schools demo videos.

SLANT is an engagement technique used in most KIPP schools, including KIPP: Inspire Academy, where I teach. It is effective.

Clear and explicit way of how to engage during a lesson. Never take the basics for granted.

    Interviewer: SLANT stands for sit up straight, listen, ask and answer questions, nod and track the speaker. Markers capped in three, vertebrae’s stacked in two. Thanks for your focus.

    It’s actually something that came out of the Kip Charter schools, and has been just really effective in our classroom in terms of one, helping students be sitting in a way that’s gonna help them learn. And two, reinforcing some of the life skills that they need outside of our classroom to truly be college bound.
