4 !!!Arguable Content!!! The attention span of teens is as different as a doctors idea of who needs ADHD meds… Here are what some say… Created by: Peyton Anderson Teach Like T.V. 2012

5 A few arguable facts… a middle school-age child's attention span is between eight and fourteen minutes ~ Louis Pugliese, Educational Psychology Lecturer. Cal. State Univ. Psychologists vary on what they believe the average attention span of a child may be. Some assert that the childs age plus two minutes is the average. That means most kindergarteners (most are five years old) have a seven-minute attention span. ~ Sue Freeman Culverhouse success-or-failure-in-school/ Created by: Peyton Anderson Teach Like T.V. 2012

6 Just a bit more… …Others insist that the age of the child multiplied by three to five minutes is the average. These folks think that a six-year- old, or average first grader, can concentrate for 18 to 30 minutes. Few of these people have taught first grade. ~ Sue Freeman Culverhouse success-or-failure-in-school/ Created by: Peyton Anderson Teach Like T.V. 2012

7 Roughly every 6- 8 minutes of TV programming there are 2-3 minutes of commercials during prime time hours. We all have seen a decline in the attention span of our students… So, what now??? FACTOBSERVATION Created by: Peyton Anderson Teach Like T.V. 2012

8 Teaching Like Television We know that our students can keep their attention long enough to watch TV. We know that they can watch YouTube videos which generally run less than 9 minutes a piece. Created by: Peyton Anderson Teach Like T.V. 2012

21 Dictionary Drag Racing Created by: Peyton Anderson Teach Like T.V. 2012

22 Dictionary Drag Racing When we run across a word(s) that we can not find the meaning of in the reading or general knowledge it is time to race to find the meaning… Choose two students and place the dictionaries on the opposite end of the table. When you say Go they must get to the book find and read the CORRECT definition to the class so they can hear and understand it. Created by: Peyton Anderson Teach Like T.V. 2012

28 Round 3: Practical Technology Created by: Peyton Anderson Teach Like T.V. 2012

29 Good Ol PowerPoint All those PowerPoint rules for making a presentation are TRASH if you are a teacher! They are meant for professional (i.e. Boring) presentations. NOT TEACHING! So….do what you feel!!! Created by: Peyton Anderson Teach Like T.V. 2012

30 PowerPoint Tips: Pavlov had it right. Match sounds to specific actions. Certain action sounds match specific things. I use the laser sound ONLY for important test hints. I tell them this and let them discover them in the presentations. More pictures and LESS words! Use things they know! Sounds and pictures. Created by: Peyton Anderson Teach Like T.V. 2012

31 More Tips: This is a blank presentation. No themes. No colors. No nothing! Colors and themes make eyes tired and gives whining children something to complain about. Besides having a while background makes what shows up more important and special. Always end on a blank slide… Created by: Peyton Anderson Teach Like T.V. 2012

32 More and More… Google and Bing both have great image searches. Search the phrase not just the word. Sometimes it can get you exactly what you want. Prepare yourself for a couple of sketchy photos here and there. DO NOT OVER USE THE SOUNDS ALREADY IN THE PROGRAM! There is only so much applause and wind noises I can take.

33 Sounds!!!! LISTEN TO THEM ALONE before using in class. Created by: Peyton Anderson Teach Like T.V. 2012

34 Saving Sounds: RIGHT mouse click save target as So easy… Created by: Peyton Anderson Teach Like T.V. 2012

35 Make a C.O.W. Computer On Wheels Borrow a laptop, LCD projector, and speakers (or use yours). Put them on your cart and DONE! This is something your Librarian may have already done. Or should do… Created by: Peyton Anderson Teach Like T.V. 2012
