In this pre-teaching scenario, adult education instructor Duane Lambert gets his learners involved in understanding elements of persuasion while introducing some basic concepts and essential questions.
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.
Because some pre-teaching strategies do not require your direct involvement, learners are encouraged to develop independent learning strategies. There are several pre-teaching activities that can prepare your learners for every day's lesson as soon as they enter your room.
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.
