Instructional Strategies


I use a wide variety of instructional strategies in my class regularly to engage my students. I provide positive behavior incentive systems for reluctant learners. I regularly differentiate independent practice so that students can get the most out of their independent work. Students work daily with guided notes and grapple with real-world word problems. My students regularly use technology both for differentiated instruction through i-Ready or ALEKS, and I use technology daily simply to make powerpoints and play classical music while students work. My students sometimes do gallery walks as well. Word walls and anchor charts are posted around the classroom to assist students. These instructional strategies aim to make the content more interesting, tangible, and organized for students.

I use a variety of instructional strategies including, but not limited to:

Differentiated Practice

Real-World Word Problems

Gallery Walks

Word Walls and Anchor Charts

Guided Notes

Positive Behavior Incentive Systems

Technology Usage


My instruction is designed to maximize student learning. I carefully plan every lesson and collaborate regularly with my colleagues to do so. My instruction is regularly differentiated and properly scaffolded to reach all learners. I keep the content engaging by incorporating real-world applications, games, technology, and gallery walks. To keep even the most reluctant learners engaged, I also have my own in-house positive behavior incentive systems. As a result, the majority of students have earned a passing grade in my class because they are engaged with the course material regularly.
