1 DSST Core Instructional Practices

2 Guitar & Violin by Picasso

3 “The more technique you have, the less you have to worry about it. The more technique there is, the less there is.” Picasso “It’s the little details that are important. Little details make big things happen.” John Wooden

4 Look for:  What techniques does Nicole use to create a powerful learning culture in her classroom?  How does this culture allow her to maximize learning for her students?

5  How does this clip reinforce some of the techniques and strategies that you are already using?  What are some new techniques that this clip encourages you to try?

6 Jot down:  One technique you’ll try tomorrow  Three “little details” that can make “big things happen” in your classroom culture

7 Brain Rules Rule #4: Attention We don’t pay attention to boring things. Brain Rules Rule #5: Short-Term Memory Repeat to remember.

8  Stop & Jot: Jot down some of the techniques you use to help students move knowledge and/or skills from short-term to long-tem memory.  Turn & Talk: Share your list with the person sitting next to you.

9 Brain Rules Rule # 6: Long-Term Memory Repeat to remember. Learning occurs best when new information is incorporated gradually into the memory store rather than when it is jammed in all at once (Medina 133). Read pp. 132-133 from Brain Rules

10 Share Out: Based on this passage from Brain Rules, which of your techniques does neuroscience support? Why?

11  Rule: The way to make long-term memory more reliable is to incorporate new information and repeat it in timed intervals (Medina 147).  Technique: Spiraling Consciously go back over essential information many times to ensure it is incorporated into long-term memory.

12  Rule: “You can improve your chances of remembering something if you reproduce the environment in which you first put it into your brain” (Medina 119).  Technique: Show highlights of a PowerPoint seen months before: ask students to explain images.

13  Rule: “The more elaborately we encode a memory during its initial moments, the stronger it will be” (Medina 119).  Technique: Students role play to employ different foreign policy strategies in order to help new information encode deeply.

14 Roosevelt’s Big Stick Policy-  negotiate where possible, use force when necessary  The U.S. as an “international policy power”



17  Average on spiraled terms (review): 90%  Average on terms introduced in lesson: 69%  Average on new terms used in role play: 77%

18  History: Room 105  English: Room 136  Science: Room 134  Math: Room 135
