Inclusive Instrumental Learning: Part 2
Know Your Students Communication Over Assumption
Here is a question to consider either on your own or in discussion with others who you are with now. If you are with others – please take a good 2 minutes to think on your own first, before launching into a discussion.
Think/discuss/write: What are the actions you already take to get to know your students, either before you teach them for the first time – or during the year?
Once you’ve finished your discussion, click the ‘responses’ tab for a list of possible actions you can take to get to know your students. Please do add any I’ve missed in the YouTube video comments.
How much student talking?
Spend a few minutes thinking on your own before your discussion.
- How much, generally, do students talk in your lessons?
- What are the benefits of students talking in lessons?
- What are the challenges associated with student talking in lessons?
- How can ‘talking’ improve the inclusion of lessons?
- What ideas do you have to include talking in your lessons that is positive, constructive, inclusive and well-managed? This might be a new idea, or making a change to something you currently do to make it more positive, constructive, inclusive or well-managed.
