This short video covers three essential teaching strategies. These tips will be most useful to non-educators that are using Street Law strategies and resources, such as law students or attorneys volunteering in classrooms.
- Wait time is a simple strategy that facilitators can use to increase student engagement and improve student responses to a question.
- Checking for Understanding can be used at crucial moments in the lesson when students must understand directions or content so that the lesson may move forward.
- Focusing a lesson on Inquiry allows students to talk themselves to understanding and do the heavy intellectual lifting of the lesson.
