Strategic Questioning

I use a lot of data to inform my instruction and target groups of all levels. One strategy I use in this targeting is Strategic Questioning - using various questioning techniques depending on the skill or scenario. I use Strategic Questioning to do formative assessment, develop a concept, and push students to explore the concept more deeply.

Individual Instruction
Targeted Intervention

I use the School of One online dashboard on my computer to monitor real-time student progress on digital content. When I notice patterns of errors and/or clear misconceptions, I approach specific students for one-on-one Targeted Interventions. This strategy allows me to correct misconceptions in real time. 

 
Collaborative Student Groups
Collaborative Station Activities

Students are being asked to create, think, read and write and increasingly higher levels and standards. Being able to reach kids at their ZPD is critical to making sure they meet and hopefully exceed these standards. When students are working collaboratively, they are learning teamwork, practicing CCSS speaking and listening skills and learning from each other - all essential elements for instructing the whole child. It is important for students to have the opportunity to experience and practice using different learning modalities.

 
Routines and Procedures
Transition Signals

Formal transitions happen twice during a double-block period. My students have to move from one section of my extra-large classroom (3 classrooms merged into one) and move to another section for a new lesson with a new teacher. My students have two minutes to transition from session to session, and we play a variety of interesting music on the surround sound stereo system to keep it fun.
