Do you use evidence-based teaching strategies?
How many evidence-based teaching strategies do you use? Thanks to an infographic I found on Twitter, you might start using more. I watch social media closely and it's my job to share some of the hot topics on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and other outlets that teachers, principals, students, and parents are contributing.
Alex Corbitt posted an infographic from Impact Wales on his Twitter account. This infographic listed the top 10 evidence based teaching strategies. It defines an evidence-based teaching strategy as strategies that are supported by hard research, have a high effect on student results, and are suitable for all subjects. You can see the infographic below.
These ten practices are research tested and will produce positive results in your classroom. They help give students direction, encourage higher levels of thinking, and give them some control over their learning.
Do you use these strategies? Which ones have worked for you? Are there some you think should get added? How do you incorporate these strategies into your classroom?
