Adult education instructor Duane Lambert puts learners into groups to formulate arguments for and against a specific issue. Each group discusses their position and prepares to deliver a persuasive argument.
These resources are part of KET's Teaching Strategies collection.
In the adult learning classroom, learners are often more comfortable working in small groups than as individuals. Posing topics for small group discussion ensures that all learners have an opportunity to participate without fear of embarrassment. Assigning different perspectives on the same topic encourages critical thinking.
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.
