Each week, School Improvement Network, a professional learning provider for educators, shares a different teaching strategy on its blog.
For example, an English class is most often filled with varying levels of student comprehension. Planning a lesson to fit the individual needs of each student can be challenging.
High school English and language arts teacher Elizabeth Gargis tailors her lesson plan to each of her students by interpreting two stanzas from John Milton’s epic poem “Paradise Lost” from contrasting perspectives.
Check out the video in the “Critical Approaches to a Literary Text” blog post to learn about procedures such as “Think-Pair-Share,” “Guided Reading,” “Group Work,” and “Student Presentations.”
