I use these Whole Brain Teaching attention getters on a daily basis with my ELL students. These attention getters are a great way to improve your classroom management. I usually pick one or two to teach the class at the beginning of the year. Then every month or every few weeks, I introduce a new attention getter, which my students can't wait for!!
How do you individualize instruction in your classroom and allow students to pursue their interests? Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed the types of individualized learning they use in their classroom: project based learning, Genius Hour, and 20% time, and how they got started and introduced it to students. Teachers also shared past PBL units, final products, successes and obstacles. Read through the chat for ideas to implement in your own classroom.
