Ebony's Strategies to Support Remote Learning
As Dean of Instruction, Ebony Jones created this workspace to support teachers in the shift to remote instruction and learning.
MY Strategies for teaching with video
When annotating, students engage deeply with a text and make their thinking visible while reading.
By talking through their thinking at each step of a process, teachers can model what learning looks like.
Content that is provided in clear, short chunks can support students' Working Memory.
Students whose families are involved and feel valued within the school community are less likely to miss school, which research has shown can cause students to fall behind academically.
Visualizing how ideas fit together helps students construct meaning and strengthens their recall.
Reading aloud regularly exposes students to new and familiar Vocabulary and texts.
When students explain their thinking process aloud, they recognize the strategies they use and solidify their understanding.
Providing visuals to introduce, support, or review instruction activates more cognitive processes to support learning.
Advance graphic organizers link prior knowledge to upcoming learning to help students anticipate and understand the structure of new information.
CRA is a sequential instructional approach during which students move from working with concrete materials to creating representational drawings to using abstract symbols.
