Teacher Instructions Week 6
Early Learning Foundations 2
Special Input - Classroom Discussion
This is referring to Input Activities like clocks. Most of the Special Input is provided in the Visual Input Sessions but some Special Input is for classroom discussions or demonstrations.
All of the activities in the Early Learning Foundations program are designed to give "input" to the student frequently, with high intensity and over a period of time so that when the "output" is required, there is not hesitation on the student's part. This teaching technique builds confidence and assures that teaching has taken place instead of just requiring knowledge of students that they have not experienced. Whatever the "Special Input - Classroom Discussions" are for a particular week are described in detail in the Teacher's Guide or the Appendix as indicated in the guide. Remember these are very short session that happen daily so don't feel like you have to cover every detail about a particular topic each time. The knowledge will build upon itself until the students have the full understanding.
