Script for High Schoolers
D-Ed Reckoning often praises the Direct Instruction program. I have come to the conclusion that a scripted program could work at the elementary level. Today, I found a link, through Kitchen Table Math, that provides an example of a script for the high school level--assuming a literature class. Hey, I teach literature. Maybe I should give it a try:
1. Some people are smart. Smart is how they are the same.
The sameness is a concept.
Again, the sameness is a concept.
Sameness is a what?...a concept.
So, if some things have a smart sameness, what is the conept?...smart.
2. Some students work hard. Work hard is the sameness.
Work hard is a concept. Work hard is what?...a concept.
3. Some things are easy. Easy is the sameness.
What is the concept?...easy.
4. Look around the room. Find a way that things are the same...
What is one sameness?...the students are sleeping.
So, what is the concept?...sleeping.
