Focus Lesson Guided Instruction

“I do it” “We do it”


“You do it together”


“You do it alone”

If your lesson failed, did you skip one of these steps?

Children may forget what you say, but they won’t forget how you make them feel.

• Tell me…I’ll forget.

• Show me..I’ll remember.

• Involve me…

I’ll understand.

Primacy-Recency Brain Information

Break learning into chunks:

20 minutes new material

15 minutes application, sharing, movement rehearsal

15 minutes new material again.

Excellence can be attained if you...

Care more than others think is wise.

Risk more than others think is safe.

Dream more than others think is practical.

Expect more than others think is possible.

Remember that each day, for one or more of the students you teach, school is the easiest thing they have to do....We do not know what they must go through just to be sitting in your classroom....For many of our students, school is the refuge, the only place that they know they are safe.

Learning means to understand concepts that you will keep for life. eop-images/ recess-student-learning.jpg?sfvrsn=2

To learn is to gain knowledge from one’S sources or surroundings

“Do not be afraid or timid about responding, ‘I don’t know’ to a question. But do all you can to find and relay the answer. You will gain your students’ respect.”

“Never assume.

— begin with what students know.” ate/HE_ADV_0706_AssumptionsDiversity.j


CHECK us out! Our first meeting is September 25 at the Bedford School.

Marketing Tips—from Psi State Break Out Meeting: Thanks to Beta Rho and Eta Chapter Presenters • • • • Market your chapter: sell chapter t-shirts and have sisters wear them on the same work day— ready to give their elevator speeches.

Order a chapter sign and post it in the teacher’s workroom or lounge on meeting days.

Prepare a display board for the same workroom—highlight chapter programs, scholarship opportunities, the sharing of a spiritual fellowship, the sharing of valuable knowledge.

Get the buzz out about your chapter—local newspapers, placing chapter newsletter or DKG materials in lounges of schools (get activities published, events, honors for sisters out there for all to see).

• 3 Develop a clear chapter purpose: “Alpha Rho provides new books for all newborns in the county, dictionaries for rd grade classrooms, and the International Emergency Fund.” • Ask each sister to bring in a list of six potential new members.

• Spend a meeting coming up with TALKING POINTS about your chapter .

Consider these elements for talking points: --your length in chapter --personal benefits of membership --international organization with chapters in 18 countries --chances for state and international scholarships --particular projects of your chapter --your favorite meeting last year --number of meetings and dues for the year

Remind the sisters (again thanks to Beta Rho and Eta): • • • • You were chosen by someone as an exemplary female educator.

Someone saw something in you—your work, your standards, your success with students, your cooperative attitudes, your potential.

Someone sponsored you.

Now, you can return the favor—honor someone else. o_teachers_studying.jpg content/uploads/2011/03/out-of-the-box.jpg

Think outside box!

• Share your chapter’s strengths: what sisters know about the Varied Brain, Action Research, Power of Reflective Teaching • Survey to see what young career educators want to learn—for their classrooms or evening hours (bridge, Bunco, crochet, cross-stitch, technology, scrapbooking, sweet rolls)
