How to Select Strategies
Before selecting a strategy the teacher must make several other decisions,
e.g., what to teach, how to assess learning, etc. Click on this link to see a
list of 10 considerations a teacher must make before selecting an
appropriate instructional strategy: You may wish to print it for use during
your lesson planning.
Checklist for selecting instructional strategies
Take A Look
Step 1: Teacher poses a discussion topic or question
Step 2: Students think individually from 10 seconds to 5 minutes:
• What information is needed to solve the problem?
• What do I already know?
• What strategies and tools can I use?
• What are some questions for my partner?
Step 3: Talk about ideas with a partner for 2-3 minutes
Step 4: Share ideas with large group for 3-4 minutes
Think About – cont.
Rewrite each lower level question below as a higher level question.
Use the Instructional Rigor- Questions/Product Aligned with Revised
Bloom’s Taxonomy as your guide. Keep this in your notes.
Example: Who is your favorite character?
Rewritten as a Higher Order Question: How is your favorite
character most like you and most different from you?
1. What is a pentagon?
2. What is an example of a landform?
3. What would happen to vegetation in the event of an erupting
volcano?
4. Demonstrate the order of the coins if they were grouped in value
from least to greatest.
5. Can you list the names of the first five presidents?
6. How photosynthesis occur?
7. What is the purpose of the italicized word in the selection?
8. Describe the author’s perspective.

About ISLES
What’s This?
• Learn about a common framework for instructional
practices that highlights ten evidence based strategies
for increasing student achievement.
• Explore the framework in your introduction courses,
methods courses, senior courses, and internship.
Understand it, explain it, see it, plan it, and do it!
• Experience the connections with Pitt County and Greene
County schools as their teachers incorporate a similar
framework.

on the framework at every step. The islands within the
modules are designed using the Star Legacy Framework.

• Consider how you will meet the needs of the diverse
children in your classroom. The ISLES modules will
prepare you to do just that, one semester at a time.

Instructional Strategy Lessons
for Educators Series
(ISLES)
Overview
Research has shown that student achievement is directly tied to teacher
effectiveness. As a result, there is now a nationwide reform movement
to improve teacher effectiveness. As part of the reform movement the
Office of Innovation and Improvement in the United States Department
of Education awarded “Teacher Quality Partnership Grants” to teacher
education programs around the country. In the fall of 2009, the College
of Education at East Carolina University won one of the 28 Grants. With
the grant funds, ECU’s College of Education is reforming several areas
of its program: Recruitment, Curriculum, and Clinical Practice. ECU
partners, Pitt County Schools and Greene County Schools, are
reforming their induction programs as well.
New Faculty Orientation
Overview – continued
The ISLES Module that you are about to complete is part of the
curriculum component of the reform. It is designed to teach you 10
particular instructional strategies. They are not the only strategies that
are effective or that a prospective teacher should learn to incorporate in
instruction. The 10 instructional strategies discussed in the module
constitute a starting place; over time you are expected to learn additional
effective instructional strategies. You will receive instruction on those
additional strategies from your professors. Also note that instructional
strategies are not the only means of raising student achievement. An
effective teacher must have good classroom management, an effective
curriculum, and appropriate professional dispositions. For now,
however, the curriculum reform is focusing primarily on effective
instructional strategies.
New Faculty Orientation
Overview – continued
The goal of the declarative module (ISLES 1) was to teach you what the
strategies are. This module (ISLES 2) is at the procedural knowledge
level is designed to teach you how to incorporate the strategies into
lesson plans. You will complete the module for implementing these
strategies later in your program.
The following instructions will help you complete the module
successfully. Please read all of them carefully. Thank you for your
cooperation and good luck in your quest to become an effective teacher.
New Faculty Orientation
Module Instructions Provided to the Students
Please read all of the instruction carefully before accessing the online
module.
1. The ISLES #2: Procedural Knowledge module is a required course
assignment embedded in your Blackboard (BB) course.
2. It is important that you try your best when completing it and treat it as
seriously as any other assignment in the course.
3. It is also imperative that you maintain the highest academic integrity
while completing it. Please do not discuss the assessment questions
or answers with anyone else until after everyone has completed it.
4. The module is comprised of 5 Islands (Organizers, Concept Learning,
Question & Review, Grouping, and Assessment). Two strategies from
each category are taught.
5. It should take you between 30 minutes and 1 hour to complete each of
the 5 islands.
6. Carefully plan when and where you complete the module. Select a
quiet comfortable location with enough time to complete a single
island.
7. You should also take notes while completing the islands.
New Faculty Orientation
8. The ISLES module will be located in your course Blackboard site.
9. Once you access the site, you will see five presentations, each one
representing a different island of the module.
10. Begin with the Organizers island. Work through that presentation. If time
permits, continue on to the Concept Learning island from there. If you don’t
have time to do more than one island at a time, simply return to the website
when you are able to do so. Follow this procedure for each of the remaining
islands: Question & Review, Grouping, and Assessment. Be sure to complete
the islands in order; this is important since the content of an island builds
upon content in prior islands.
New Faculty Orientation
11. Each island has the same 5-part structure: Mission, First Impressions,
Exploration, Assessment, and Review. In the Mission section, you learn
about a familiar problem or situation that teachers encounter in their
classrooms. From there you move to First Impressions where your prior
knowledge about the mission is activated. In the Exploration part of the
lesson you learn the lesson objective and the information about the
instructional strategies in that category. After exploring the topic, you will
assess your understanding in the Assessment part of the lesson using a
multiple-choice quiz. Finally, you will review what you learned in the Review
section with references and resources.
12. When taking the quiz in the Assessment section of the lesson, you must
answer each item to move forward and you cannot change your answer
once it has been submitted. Blackboard will record your grade for each
island and calculate your total grade for the module.
13. You are now ready to begin the ISLES #2 Module.
