Instructor Betsy Popple delivers a lecture-based lesson on area; specifically, finding the area of compound rectilinear shapes.
These resources are part of KET's Math Instructional Strategies: Geometry collection.
Traditionally, lecture-based approaches to instruction have been often used in Adult Basic Education. Teach the formula, have learners practice examples, have them apply the examples in word problems, then move to the next concept. In classrooms where learners have some prior experience with a concept, or those in which learners are on a review or "fast track" to the GED®, lecture-based methods can be an effective way to quickly and efficiently refresh learners' skills.
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.
