Discovery Education today announced it has aligned its Spotlight on Strategies content to McREL International's six-phase model for learning. The alignment of this series of digital professional learning resources to McREL’s model helps educators choose the appropriate classroom tactics for aiding the acquisition and recall of information.
Available in all Discovery Education Techbooks and Streaming services, the Spotlight on Strategies or SOS series offers creative, research-based instructional videos and supporting materials developed for teachers, by teachers.
McREL’s six-phase model was recently outlined in a McREL whitepaper entitled Student Learning that Works, and consists of:
1. Become interested in learning,
2. Committing to learning,
3. Engaging in learning,
4. Making sense of learning,
5. Practicing new learning, and
6. Applying learning and finding meaning.
