MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach in an urban community with a high population of English Language Learners and a high poverty rate. Since I am on the Leadership Team at my school, I am part of the first group of teachers who are instructed in the new teaching methods. I use a wide variety of teaching strategies including; Gradual Release of Responsibility, Constructing Meaning, SDAIE, Cornell Notes, Costa's Questions, etc.
