Why Teaching Strategies Matter
You only have 60 minutes, or 90 minutes per subject. You have a range of student abilities. You have too many standards to teach.
...Add on interruptions, social and emotional learning, and any mistakes that occur.
Strategy matters because it minimizes the impact of all of these factors.
Instructional Strategies. You know students learn best when they are truly engaged in what they are learning. The best instructional strategies give students the right opportunities to explore, analyze, discuss, examine, practice, and receive feedback on the concepts and skills they are ready to learn.
Teaching without Strategy. Every course comes with teaching materials. You are usually provided with a teacher's edition of a textbook or a website with resources. Teaching without strategies is the same as being a mail delivery...deliver the teaching materials to the students. You are more the Amazon Prime - you are a strategic teaching professional!
