Topic: Learning Focused Strategies
Key Learning: The Learning-Focused Strategies Model provides a planning
framework that when
implemented with quality transforms standards from “words in a document” into
learning for all students.

For every Lesson Essential Question (LEQ)
you should have an
Acquisition Lesson with 2-4 higher level
extended thinking questions and/or activities
or
an Extended Thinking Lesson (EMTS)
What should a lesson contain?
*Acquisition lesson is used to teach a NEW
concept/skill/knowledge in order to answer the LEQ.
*Activating strategies are used to activate or build
background knowledge as well as to model/preview vocabulary,
thinking strategies, and graphic organizers that may be new in
the unit. Best planned after the teaching strategies.
*Graphic Organizers: You should have one in every lesson--not necessarily a new one. It can be an LFS graphic organizer
or one you have created or found.
*Teaching Strategies: Instruction should be before the
assessment prompt (distributed summarizing).
Teach > Assessment prompt >
Teach > Assessment
prompt > Teach > Assessment prompt …
2-4 extended thinking questions or activities should
be included in each lesson
*Summarizing: Should be distributed throughout the lesson—
not just at the end! Key to knowing when and what to reteach!
Top 8
Extended Thinking
Strategies
Include 2-4
extended thinking activities
and/or questions in acquisition
lesson to “extend” or transfer
previously learned concepts,
skills, or knowledge.
Abstracting
Analyzing Perspectives
Classifying/Categorizing
Comparing/Contrasting
Constructing Support
Deductive Reasoning
Error Analysis
Inductive Reasoning
*Summarizing Strategies: should be written
most of the
time, not oral to answer
the LEQ
Ex: KWL, 3-2-1, $2.00 summary, learning
logs, etc.
