Why I just now discovered and came across Whole Brain Teaching I have no clue. But now that I've found it, I am hooked. They had me from claaassssssssssssssss- yeeeeeeeeeess.
If you aren't sure what I'm talking about check out these excellent videos of teachers modeling Whole Brain Teaching
Here's a kindergarten example of the 5 rules
and one more for 6th grade order of operations
I have started implementing some of the first steps during my Corrective Reading Direct Instructional Block.
We use the gesturing, rules (our STAR rules for Corrective) , teacher student game, and the hands and eyes.
I love, love ,looooooooove this whole model and want to dig in and learn more.
I also want to begin using the Class teach-okay during my math groups.
So tell me blogging world..how many of you are whole brain teachers? If so care to share your thoughts, feelings, techniques, etc.
