Recorded October 11, 2011
Help all students demonstrate active participation and cognitive engagement in whatever you’re teaching by embedding Total Participation Techniques (TPTs) in your lessons.
Based on their ASCD book, Pérsida Himmele and William Himmele will walk you through the why and the how of these essential classroom techniques. Reflecting on their work in K–12 classrooms, the Himmeles will provide
- Photos and descriptions of TPTs being used in classrooms.
- Background on how to use TPTs to support students in their development of higher-order thinking skills.
- A model for cognitive engagement that you can use for planning, peer coaching, and leading.
