Running A Quality Lesson
Tell us what you think about Match Minis > > >
Lesson Quality is the most sprawling and nuanced of the variables that go into generating classroom learning. But all quality lessons have some basic common qualities:
First, they comprise many tight loops of practice and feedback. That is, students practicing new tasks, and teachers giving them feedback on their execution.
And second, a quality lesson is always tight. There's no wasted time, smooth transitions, and every activity is explicitly in the service of moving kids towards today's goal.
