For this week, we invite you to apply the concept of “prior learning.”
Using what you know of this concept, describe how would you would teach students the following (choose one):
how to spell the word “inoculate” [keep in mind almost everyone thinks it’s “innoculate”]
What is “negative reinforcement”?
The following grammar rule: that “she went skiing and then to the orthopedist” does not have a comma before “and” but “she went skiing, and then she went to the orthopedist” does. [Lots of people would incorrectly put it in the first example]
How would what you’ve learned about ‘prior learning” change how you would do the microteaching you did on the first day of class?
