Adult education instructor Duane Lambert uses a song to demonstrate techniques of persuasion. Learners work in groups to discuss persuasive techniques used in the song's lyrics to deliver its message.
These resources are part of KET's Teaching Strategies collection.
Several minutes can often be lost at the beginning of class as learners get settled. By employing pre-teaching strategies, you can ensure that learning begins right away. Effective pre-teaching sets the tone for your class and lets learners know what to expect. Pre-teaching can act as a "hook" to get your learners' attention. It lets learners know what to expect and helps begin the process of connecting prior knowledge with new concepts.There are several pre-teaching techniques that can help prepare learners for the day's lesson.
Music can be an unexpected and effective way to introduce your topic. Most learners like music, but is not necessary for them to like the music you choose to complement your lesson. Just look for a song that addresses your topic, print the lyrics, and have learners look for answers to your questions as they listen to the song.
From grammar to current events, music can be an effective way to engage your learners.
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.
