What Should High Quality Instruction Look Like in the Classroom

Students learn how to Learn

High quality means:- Looking at the students individually, not at a statistic.- moving students from merely preformace centered learning to an overall learning focus.-using assessments to solidify the problem area, and provide additional learning opportunities.- taking a holistic approach to teaching.-realizing every student has the ability and want to learn.

Just as the name says, universal learning is the idea that all students can learn with high quality teaching. Typically it is multitiered so as to support all students at all levels. Collaboration among teachers is a key factor, as is the use of culturally responsive practices.Revelant and valid assessments play a major role as well.

Using a Universal Design for Learning

What Should High Quality Instruction Look like in the Classroom?


MTSS or Multitiered System of Supports are used to differentiate among students. Two examples are: RTI: Response to Intervention& PBIS: Positive Behavioral Incentive SystemRTI is a three leveled process. level 1: All students are giveng general education using group interventions and differentiation when needed. level 2: Individualized, intensive intervention is given to students in a smal group setting where needs are alike.level 3: Validated, intensive instruction is given one to one and progress is monitored closely. PBIS is a positive behavior initiative to promote schoolwide emotional/behavioral well-being. Insentives may be offered to reward good behaviors.


The Marginalization PhenomenonDr. Ann Yehle of UW-L talked a great deal about her experience with diverse students being marginalized in classrooms. Advice:-look for patterns of marginalization (pinpoint the problem being seen)-address the staff concerning the description on marginalization and tools to combat its effects.-involve the students: ask them how they can showcase their work, using strengths based instruction, have students be metacognitive in their learning, reflecting on their time learning.

SO, high quality classrooms should function keeping all these tools in mind. Teachers should look at their students individually, getting to know them so that when an intervention is needed, either behavioral or educational, the teacher is prepared. Teachers should be on the look out for marginalization of groups or people, making all students feel welcome and able to achieve. Collaborate with colleagues and even with students to make this happen!
