BEST PRACTICES STRATEGIES
Best practices in education involves teachers gathering the best pedagogical practices to implement in the classroom to better the learning of all students. Best practices requires teachers to support students through specific instruction to meet their learning needs and to promote continual growth in all areas of learning and academics. I believe that best practices in the classroom involves the teacher assisting students in developing the skills needed to take control of their learning and show growth mindset through self-directed learning. There are various best practices to use in the classroom. One that I favor the most are, maintaining classroom management through the use of classroom slides with timers for clear and explicit directions that meet the needs of all learners and allow them to pace their learning through the use of the timer. I also believe it is important to scaffold collaborative discussions between students within the classroom. Above all else, building relationships with students is the BEST practice I have discovered for my classroom and it is an ever growing area that can always be improved in each and every classroom.
