Lesson 10, Topic 4
- Analyze one lesson you have taught (or will teach). Place the lesson elements into the appropriate quadrants in the cognitive engagement grid above. What opportunities existed for your students to use higher-order thinking? What were the questions that you asked and how many of your students were required to show evidence that they had processed those higher-order questions? In a coming lesson, how could you improve to ensure every student does process higher-order questions?
- How can you use either on-the-spot or hold-up participation techniques in your teaching? Which of these techniques would you like to try next and why?
- Write out a 3-sentence summary or wrap-up of this presentation to share with a colleague and discuss.
- Rank and star the total participation teaching techniques that you think are most conducive to your teaching style. Share them with a colleague and talk about your plan to implement them regularly with your students.
