Ohio, like most states, has a focus on several teaching strategies. Some of those are great, some not-so great. Formative Instructional Practices is one of the great ones that is worth investing your time and effort into so I wanted to share some ways to make it work in the speech room.
The direct quotes and images from below are from the Batelle For Kids website here. I’ll post links throughout.
WHAT ARE FORMATIVE INSTRUCTIONAL PRACTICES?
“Formative instructional practices (FIP) are the formal and informal ways that teachers and students gather and respond to evidence of learning. These practices help students answer those questions, in order to become a true partner in the teaching and learning process. There are four core components of FIP. Research shows that integrating these components into daily practice can increase student learning and teacher effectiveness.”
Our preschool program is featured in several videos about how to FIP at the preschool level. In the next few weeks, I’m going to share some ideas for how to use it for speech therapy for the 4 main FIP areas. If you’re a FIP school, I hope you comment and share your experiences too! This week, click on the image above and see how we FIP in our play-based classrooms.
Until next time!
