Transcript of Instructional Strategies in the Virtual Classroom

This shows several types of classroom arrangements.

Traditional Set Up
Partner Seating
Horseshoe Seating
Grouped Seating

The next two slides have pictures of different classroom seating arrangements and how classroom walls can be decorated.
Classroom should look inviting and friendly. This will help the students feel comfortable.
Desks should be arranged so that students can engage with one another and be able to see the different items on the walls that are displayed. It is best to have desks in groups of 3 or 4 and faced in different directions.
Walls should be rich with information the students are learning and have learned.

Instructional Strategies in the Virtual Classroom
Multisensory Activities

This includes activities that use different modalities such as; taste, smell, hear, see, and feel. Activities will should engage the students by using all of their five senses.
Introducing new vocabulary words in a lesson by using the students five senses will give them a connection to the new words and concepts they are learning.

is a great strategy to begin

A KWL chart is a chart that allows the students to talk about what they already (K) know about the subject, (W) what they want to learn about the subject, and then gives the teacher a chance to review the lesson by asking the students what they have (L) learned.

This strategy involves the teacher taking a deeper look into where her students are struggling and succeeding. Differentiated Instruction is when the teacher will adapt instruction and assessments appropriately to meet the needs of all her students.

Using sentence stems for some students and having other students write their own sentence.
Having vocabulary cards for students that need help in writing.
In math allow students to use different types of manipulative's.
Differentiated Instruction
IN Conclusion
I have only spoken of a few strategies that can be used in all classrooms, especially classrooms that serve ELL students. Remember when choosing strategies for your classroom take a deeper look into how your students learn and react to the learning environment. This will help guide you when choosing the strategies that will be beneficial in your classroom.

Another important aspect to teaching students is creating that personal relationship or bond with your students. By creating a bond they will be more open to learning and participating. This will allow them to feel safe. Even as adult we want that relationship or bond, and it also makes us feel safe. When students feel safe and loved they can become successful in school.
