Storyboard Text

  • One teacher is teaching and one is observing. The observer is tasked with gathering specific data on the students throughout the lesson.(WSU College of Education, 2009) This can be helpful in identifying struggling students or lessons that are missing the "mark"
  • One Teaching, One Observing
  • Class, do you understand the difference between a noun and a verb?
  • Look at Joey, he hasn't written anything and is staring at the floor. He's not getting it.
  • One teacher is teaching and the other is assisting. The assisting teacher provides help, gathers data, and assists with classroom management. This helps offer more support to students than a single teacher can. Roles need to be changed regularly, however,  so students don't see one teacher as an authority over the other.(Curry School of Education, 2014)
  • One Teaching, One Assisting
  • Raise your hand if you have any questions, and Ms. Smith or I will come check with you.
  • Jane looks like she could use some help. I'll go see what I can do.
  • Red group and blue group, please bring your reading packets and come to stations.
  • Station Teaching
  • Teachers are positioned at stations to teach different concepts to rotating groups of students. This saves instructional time and offers the benefit of small group instruction.(Curry School of Education, 2014)
  • Parallel teaching involves both students teaching the same lesson simultaneously to half of the class. While this method requires more planning and space, it has the benefit of a smaller student to teacher ratio and increased behavior management possibilities.(Fitzell, 2016)
  • Today, we are going to discuss idioms and proverbs!
  • Parallel Teaching
  • Today, we are going to discuss idioms and proverbs!
  • Alternative teaching is similar to parallel teaching, except the co-teachers teach the same concepts in different ways.(WSU College of Education, 2009) This can help students who learn differently to learn the same things at the same time, but in a way that meets their needs. This is also called "differentiated teaching"
  • Let's learn more about proverbs by writing some of our own!
  • Alternative Teaching
  • Let's learn more about proverbs by analyzing some famous sayings!
  • Team teaching is often considered the most difficult format. Teachers teach simultaneously and play off of each other while the students attend to them both. Teachers must plan together in advance.(Curry School of Education, 2014) Students benefit from having two teachers that clearly respect and value each other as well as the students. It requires great communication skills and teaches those skills to the students in practice.
  • Julie, that was a great example, don't you agree Ms. Smith? 
  • Team Teaching
  • Class, what is one idiom that you have heard used in your world recently? Can you explain what that means?
