Adult education instructor Duane Lambert asks learners to think about current issues important to them. Learners write the issues on a "graffiti fence" and consider how to persuade others to agree with their point of view.
These resources are part of KET's Teaching Strategies collection.
Varying your teaching techniques can ensure that your lesson appeals to the different types of learners you encounter in the adult education classroom.
For instance, many adult learners lack confidence in an educational setting and are often more comfortable working in small groups than as individuals. Small group work can give all learners an opportunity to participate without fear of embarrassment.
Still other learners may not be able to sit still for long periods of time. Including activities that allow them to leave their seats will appeal to the kinesthetic learners in your class.
In the video "Model Lesson: Teacher Interview: Setting the Classroom Environment," adult education instructor Duane Lambert discusses specific techniques he uses to create a comfortable classroom environment.
Incorporating various activities into your lessons will help both you and your learners to have a more productive classroom experience.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
