Helping students to see the many connections between subject matter can be challenging. This Mexican classroom offers an example of how to use technology and a range of examples to bring these connections to life. The teacher carefully leads the class through examples, whilst remaining flexible to their needs by adding or changing examples. Indeed, she lets the class say if they want to continue exploring these examples Through these examples, the teacher moves towards developing a summary of the key features of their learning.
This is a rural, public school. Watch out for how the teacher:
- Explores a range of different examples with students
- Conducts a detailed, visual summary
- Pushes students to articulate their reasoning for differences
How do you use connections in your own classroom?
