Teaching a student with an emotional disturbance (ED) is a challenge for some educators. This lesson will provide simple classroom strategies to implement for a successful academic experience for all.
2. Teaching Strategies for Students with Emotional & Behavioral Disorders
It can be challenging for a teacher to manage students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders (EBD). In this lesson, we will discuss some teaching strategies for teaching EBD students.
3. Differentiated Instruction: Adapting the Learning Environment for Students
Differentiated instruction is a great strategy that teachers use to accommodate a wide variety of learning needs. In this lesson, we discuss differentiated instruction and identify which aspects of the classroom can be differentiated.
4. Scaffolding Teaching Strategies
Teachers sometimes use a method of instruction called 'instructional scaffolding.' Learn more about this and how it is used. Examine the different components of instructional scaffolding.
5. Affective Education: Definition and Examples
Affective education is a term you might come across in your teaching career. This lesson will present a definition of affective education as well as several examples of what this kind of teaching looks like in practice.
6. Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT): Theory, Research & Strategies
A person's culture can impact their approach to education and the way they learn. In this lesson, we'll examine culturally responsive teaching, a teaching method that takes into account students' cultures to help them succeed.
7. Effective Lesson Plans: Characteristics & Elements
Writing lesson plans can be an overwhelming task at times. This lesson provides a guide to effective lesson planning. Learn about techniques, examples, and how to build a plan that benefits the educator and students.
8. Social Emotional Learning Activities for the Classroom
In this lesson we'll cover some of the basics of social and emotional development and provide a few activities which can be incorporated into the classroom to aid this development. A short quiz follows.
9. Applied Behavior Analysis: Definition & Techniques
In this lesson, we will discuss applied behavior analysis, one of the most common and evidence-based methods used to treat Autism. Learn about the techniques that are used and more. Then, test your knowledge.
10. Priming as a Teaching Strategy: Definition & Examples
Teachers usually know before they present a lesson how certain students will react. Some students, who need routine and predictability, are more successful when they are prepared for what's coming. Let's look at a strategy called priming and how it may be implemented in your classroom.
11. How to Select & Adapt Materials to Meet Student Needs
Many classrooms include diverse learners of differing levels, cultures, and language abilities. In this lesson, we'll examine how to select and adapt materials to help teachers differentiate, or offer support to varying student needs.
12. Classroom Interventions for Oppositional Defiant Disorder
In this lesson, we will discuss some effective strategies and interventions for students who have been diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder. This disorder can be challenging to interact with, especially in an academic setting, but using these interventions can be beneficial for the student as well as the teacher.
