Teaching Gurus is a collection of old and new Education philosophies and teaching theorists. It’s the place to get evidence based strategies and professional learning from influential teaching theorists, and gurus, to up-skill yourself and implement into all areas of your teaching.
Take some time to revisit traditional research of the educational theorists of Blooms, Gardiner & Skinner and investigate the latest from Hattie, Paul Swan, Dr. Anne Newman, & Prof. Jo Boaler and more… These research based theories will help you make a big impact on those you teach!
Dr. Anne Newman
- Newman’s prompts and error analysis are a tool that can be used to help teachers to teach students how to solve maths problems. They are the brain child of Australian educational researcher Dr. Anne Newman. Using the NEA in your maths classroom will help students become confident and successful problem solvers.
- Using a Bloom’s matrix in the classroom is a perfect way to differentiate curriculum for the students in your classroom. When teachers create a range of activities and lessons using Blooms Taxonomy they create opportunity for everyone to achieve at their best levels. It is particularly powerful for extending students thinking which deepens their levels of understanding.
