Use this notetaking guide as part of an interactive notebook.
This sheet is meant for professional development and study of educational theorists. It is also helpful for helping students to understand the “why” behind your teaching. When students know you are ascribing to theory and research, they often seem more likely to participate in your lesson, activities, and assessments. Students may also consider doing a research project on educational theories.
Use for notetaking and as a study guide at the college level with preservice teachers. Additionally, it can be used as an assessment (pretest or posttest) on Educational Theorists.
Cut the strips a part on the lines for an interactive matching game/sort/study guide.
Strips and boxes can be cut apart on the lines and glued/taped to index cards for study purposes.
Enlarge this chart at a local printing company or education agency to use for whole group teaching purposes or as an anchor chart for a professional development session, educational seminar, or college class.
This chart could also be used via a SmartBoard, Elmo, or other classroom projection system for whole group interaction and study.
Differentiate this chart by assigning different students or different groups different theorists/theories and then sharing as a whole group.
Allow groups/students to choose their theory/theorist. Notes can be taken by other students/professionals when other theories/theorists are being presented.
Write about each theory/theorist in a different colored pen or pencil to help with recall and sorting information.
