Instructional Strategies Playlists

The lead4ward Instructional Strategies Playlists are designed to provide teachers with detailed descriptions of specific, instructional strategies, many of which are modeled and experienced in lead4ward professional development sessions. This resource is intended to support educators in using an intentional planning process that includes delivering instruction that is aligned to the TEKS, promotes student engagement, and teaches for access, rigor, and transfer. Teachers use instructional strategies to:

  • engage learners
  • provide practice without penalty
  • encourage interaction among students
  • see and hear students’ thinking

movement and discourse templates

To support implementation, lead4ward has developed templates for a selected group of strategies. The intent is for these to be used in conjunction with the instructional strategy (not as an independent activity). For strategies in the comprehensive resource that do not have a corresponding template, we encourage teachers to work collaboratively in their PLCs to create templates.
