What is your advice about? Learning theories in lessons

  1. Find out what students currently understand about topic: “why does…… happen”
  2. Then, as students volunteer information, write ideas and words on board, non judgementally.
  3. Next, go through the words and ideas, fitting them into observations. Those that work, stay, otherwise delete.
  4. Then, add to the surviving words any extra words which help explain theory , then resequence whole to form coherent story.
  5. Finally, students to write own paragraph, using coherently structured key words on board.
