Questions to "Think Aloud" as You Prepare Lessons:
~ Students: What are the academic, social, physical, personal, and emotional needs of my students?
~ Strategies: Which teaching strategies will best facilitate my students learning?
~ Grouping: Should I group heterogeneously or homogeneously? What size should my groups be?
~ Timing: When is the best time to do this lesson? Are there prerequisites my students should have mastered?
~ Materials: What materials and human resources do I need for the lesson to be successful?
~ Success: Was the lesson successful? Were my students interested? Did my students learn? What didn`t work? What will I do differently next time?
~ Sequence: What can I do next to build upon this lesson? How can I make it flow?
~ Rationale: What is the reason for doing this? What objectives will be accomplished?
Understand who you are going to educate. Anticipate various learning styles (visual, auditory, tactile or a combination). Tailor your lesson plan to incorporate all learning styles through independent and group exercises. If you are familiar with the student`s group dynamics you may choose to plan ahead of time to increase engagement and interaction. Keep in mind that you may alter any activity to be done independently, in pairs, or in small groups. Depending on the amount of time and size of the class you can be selective or mix it up and use all of these techniques.
