The Heinemann Teacher Tip: An App for Instruction
Summary : A Bevy of Instructional Ideas Waiting for You!
The Heinemann Teacher Tip app contains daily tips for users about writing, reading, and general literacy instruction. Each day, the app offers teachers a new tip, and each tip is brief and includes a reference for where users can find more information. After launching the app, teachers can access the tips by tapping the “Lined” button on the top right of the screen. Here, users can browse tips from previous days, and each tip can be shared over email, Twitter, and Facebook.
- Teachers can browse the past tips for ideas to improve their instruction. After using a tip that they found helpful, teachers can email it to themselves and print it out. That way, they will be able to document their success and remember to reuse the tip.
- Teachers can email their fellow teachers tips that they liked or found success using in the classroom.
- For teachers who are studying instruction, they can use this app as a springboard to effective instructional practices and easily consult the references. This app will then help teachers who are conducting research projects as part of their professional development or graduate coursework.
