Strong Start

This session is designed to train teachers in the technique of Strong Start (a new technique in TLAC 2.0!). Strong Start maximizes the time between the moment students walk through the door and when the main lesson begins, ensuring engagement in meaningful academic work and building positive and productive habits.
 
Through analysis of master teachers’ techniques and deep practice, participants in the session will strengthen skills by:

  • Planning and executing the three phases of a Strong Start: Door to Do Now, Do Now, and Review Now
  • Creating effective Do Nows by applying four criteria to ensure quality
  • Checking for Understanding by collecting data during the Do Now and acting on it during the Review Now

 

Ready-To-Use Materials

Our goal is for you to save time that you would otherwise spend creating a PD session from scratch and dive deep into the small concrete actions that advance your teachers’ skills from good to great. The Plug and Play provides you with:

✓ 9 video clips, with detailed analysis of each clip
