We continue our conversation from Episode 35, as we discuss the finer details of lesson planning: grabbing student attention and reflecting on the lesson.
Grab & Maintain Student Attention
- Use random selection in calling upon students (pop sticks, give warning)
- Vary who you call on and how you call on them (plan for who you will call on, fertilize the conversation)
- Ask questions before calling on a student; wait at least five seconds for a response, allow for second wait time
- Be animated; show enthusiasm and interest (vegas lounge act, humor)
- Vary instructional methods
- Provide work of appropriate difficulty
- Demonstrate and model the types of responses or tasks you want students to perform
- Provide guided practice for students; monitor responses and deliver immediate corrective feedback
Reflection on Your Lesson
- Summarize the lesson and focus on positive gains made by students; use surprise reinforcers as a direct result of their good behavior
- Determine if the lesson was successful; were goals accomplished? How do you know?
- What would/could you do differently?
