Defining “Best Practice” in Teaching – 6 practices worth mentioning (again).| Edutopia

6 practices worth mentioning (again).

  • Check for understanding often and in a variety of ways.
  • If you don’t have a well-thought out plan for your students, they will have one for you.
  • Set up the next activity while students are completing the current one — this makes for a smooth and speedy transition with little to no downtime.
  • Design the end goals and end product first (also known as backward planning).
  • Share models with students of the product or outcome you want them to create or design — and also continually model in your own behavior how you want them to act and treat each other.
  • Don’t throw anything away, especially in your first few years of teaching; you might need it later.
