Salt Lake City. UT (PRWEB) November 06, 2014
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced a new video segment showing master teachers demonstrating six proven steps for effective English language instruction. This video segment and other resources are available to all educators as part of the weekly publication “Strategy of the Week.”
“In visiting thousands of classrooms across the world, we’ve captured the strategies and teaching practices of master teachers who help their students master the content and progress towards college and career readiness,” said Chet D. Linton, CEO and president of School Improvement Network. “With all of that experience, we’ve built Edivation, an on-demand resource full of thousands of videos showing best practices, and accompanying resources such as lesson plans and professional learning communities—all to help educators increase their skills and expertise in everything from effective English language instruction to classroom management and differentiated instruction.”
In this video segment, educators will see an instructional model that outlines six stages to help English language learners increase language acquisition, including:
- Introduction – teachers help activate students’ prior knowledge and prepare them for new learning
- Input – teacher-led direct instruction
- Focus – quick check for understanding
- Transfer – students apply their new learning by working on activities or answering questions independently or in groups
- Evaluation – students report on their learning through teacher’s check for understanding, class sharing, or presentations
- Extensions – students take part in engaging activities and provide additional reinforcement of new knowledge
