Well, do ya punk?" Leapin Lizards "You're tearing me apart!" Beetlejuice Crunk LOL! "Did I do that?" How I Met Your Mother Steve Jobs " ... a three-hour tour..." Effective teaching takes students from where they are and leads them to a higher level of understanding (Krashen, 1985; Vygotsky, 1978). This higher level of understanding, or learning, must be meaningful. It is not only the amount of exposure to a given concept that affects learning, but the quality as well. Each student walks into his or her classroom with a different “schemata”---knowledge of the world. Individuals with knowledge of a topic have better recall and are better able to elaborate on aspects of the topic than those who have limited knowledge of the topic (Chiesi, Spilich, & Voss, 1979; Vogt, 2005) 1.
