Product Description

This PLC Guide focuses on the Interactive Lecture, a strategy that increases students' abilities to think actively about the content of lectures and presentations so they can lock the critical information in their memories. The Interactive Lecture engages students and helps them build strong permanent memories by leading them through the following four-phase learning process:

  • Connect: The lecture begins with a hook that helps students connect their experiences and background knowledge to the lecture topic.
  • Organize: The lecturer presents information in manageable "chunks," which students record on visual organizers.
  • Dual-Code: The lecturer uses a variety of presentation techniques to make content more memorable.

Exercise and Elaborate: The lecture closes with a synthesis task that has students integrate or summarize what they have learned.
