LC Module: Instructional Stoppers
GC210-S4 – Classroom Wisdom – Before lecture begins, Alexa or Instructor will direct that each student be assigned or draw a task of Summarizer, Clarifier, Questioner or Predictor to perform while listening to the lecture. Then, each task group will be taught how to perform their specific task effectively and directed to have a class share after completion of task.
GC209-S1-12 – Topic Stoppers – Instructional stoppers are interventions during instruction that consolidate content for the purpose of increasing content retention and long-term retrieval. Alexa or Instructor will guide the students, individually, with a partner, in a small group or as a class, to respond to instructional topic stoppers provided during instructional intervals, held approximately every 15 to 20 minutes, while listening or reading to lesson-related instruction. (Up to 12 different instructional stoppers available for instructor to make a selection.)
GC208-S2 – Topic Paraphrasing – Alexa or Instructor will lead the students in how to prepare and post 3 to 5 topic questions on index cards for response during instruction. Then, during instruction, when directed, individually, with a partner or small group, the teacher will give students five minutes to respond to each question in their own words on the front of the index card. Next, after instruction and discussion, students will be directed to add additional details, facts and examples on the back of the card.
GC207-S3 – What Do You Think You See? – Alexa or Instructor will guide the students, individually, with a partner or small group, to answer questions on an image or object presented. Then, students will be directed to develop their own question and guess what topic is to be discussed as result of the image or object being presented.
