Practice - Middle School

What is the "Practice" instructional strategy?

With "Practice", the teacher allows students opportunities to engage with the content through hands-on efforts based on teacher demonstrations.  Practice should be supervised by the teacher with consistent feedback faded out as success increases.  This helps the student to develop independent mastery and maintenance.

What are the "Middle School" context videos?

The Middle School videos focus on the application of the entire range of Primary Level strategies to students in Middle school classroom settings. The videos represent a cross section of student abilities, instructional focus, and group sizes.

The following is a list of all of the Primary Level training videos  involving the "Practice" instructional strategy within a Middle School context that are available for viewing.
