Contact Us Listen to an extended version of this post as a podcast transcript : Sponsored by Peergrade and mysimpleshow I first became aware that there might be a problem a few years ago, when one of my kids was studying weather systems: high- and low-pressure systems, cold fronts and warm fronts.

We were really frustrated, my husband and I, because all we really had as a reference was the top half of this worksheet that explained the concept. Come up to the front of the room, OK. And this group, I want you to move really, really slowly. It seemed like even a three-minute re-enactment of how these systems work would help the kids get it right away. She looked at me like I was crazy and said no.

How did you actually learn this for the first time?

We just opened it up to page 36, and then she would read a little bit to us, and then explain something, and then we would read a little bit more, and then she would say something else, and that was it. After this cycle repeats four or five times, they have some kind of test.

This is not good. They have to process them. Manipulate them. To really learn in a way that will stick, they have to DO something. But I listen to teachers talk all the time: in schools, on social media, in private messages, and I know that things are not going well for you all of the time.

This is incredibly frustrating; I know. The problem is you. The Problem: A Gap in the Lesson Plan First, let me say that authentic, project-based learning is probably the best way to have students experience meaningful learning.

Guided practice and application: With the support of the teacher, students apply what they have just been taught.

Independent practice and application: Students apply the learning on their own. Assessment: The teacher measures how well students have met the objectives.

We go straight from direct instruction to independent practice to assessment. In some cases, we may even be skipping both steps 3 and 4. Not too long ago I had to help another of my kids study for a social studies test.

All we had to work with were notes copied from a PowerPoint. When I pointed at individual items and asked my kid to tell me what they meant, that turned out to be too difficult. The teacher had just told them to write down that bullet point, but my kid left class that day not really knowing what it meant.

I remember how students could misrepresent or oversimplify the things we did in class. I would bet that this teacher took time to explain these concepts before having students copy down bullet points. Apart from the poor quality learning, this gap in our teaching is a problem for two more reasons.

Look at any social studies standards for middle school, in pretty much any state. Do any of them say that kids need to be able to identify names of significant people in historical periods, or be able to regurgitate facts about certain cultures or regions? They want students to be able to understand the relationships between social movements and changes and other influences.

They want students to be able to explain and analyze things. If students are actually doing these things in Wisconsin middle schools, that would be amazing.

But if Wisconsin is like a lot of other places, my guess is that students are sitting through PowerPoint lectures, copying notes from the PowerPoints, and transferring that information to worksheets and tests. The same could be said for science, health, and other content-heavy classes. Even in English language arts, which really should be driven more by practicing reading and writing, there are some teachers who manage to run mostly lecture-worksheet-test-based classes.

The other problem with this kind of teaching is that it makes kids hate school. In a article , instructional coach Alexis Wiggins reported on her findings after shadowing two high school students through a typical school day.

Alia is the teacher. The teacher is happy to see them. The children do not want to write. Discuss with your friends.
