Frequent Small-Group, Purposeful Talk
Frequent, Small-Group, Purposeful Talk About The Learning
Time to Translate
Student Retention
The Primacy/Recency Effect
Attention Span
Instructional Rigor and Relevance
Putting It All Together
Students take ownership of their learning.

Student's focus shifts to academic inquiry.
Student understanding - some get it ,some don't. The best way to reinforce the learning is to allow peer to peer discussion/tutoring.
primacy-the critical instructional concept
regency-the student's final demonstration of that concept.
Multiple state changes will allow students to remain in a state of vibrancy, therefore more retention.

Rigor deals with learning at a higher level-
using Bloom's Taxonomy. The teacher can use effective questioning techniques to take learning to a higher level.
Relevance deals with how the subject matter relates to students (in-content, across-content, and real-world).

It is important to increase both the lessons' relevance and rigor.

Giving students the time to talk about the subject
adult-10 to 15 min
teens-8 to 10 min
12 and under -less
can be combated by FSGPT
Teachers must plan and prepare stem questions in order for FSGPT to work.
A stem wall may be used.
A timer set to go off every 10 to 15 min. is an effective tool to use
A busy teacher will usually assign a behaviorally challenged student to help her "teach" the class by running the timer.
