Non linguistic pp

  1. 1. Non-Linguistic Representations AKA: Creating Pictures in the Mind
  2. 2. Did U Know? <ul><li>Linguistic= learning from talking </li></ul><ul><li>Non-Linguistic= learning from not talking (mental images) </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers present most of their new info by talking or by reading. </li></ul><ul><li>This means students have to come up with their own mental images (non-linguistic representations) to get it. </li></ul>
  3. 3. MAKE IT STICK! <ul><li>Try These NL Reps: </li></ul><ul><li>Creating Pictures/Pictographs </li></ul><ul><li>Kinesthetic Activity </li></ul><ul><li>Creating Graphic Representations </li></ul><ul><li>Physical Models </li></ul>
  4. 4. (symbolic pictures in the mind) Creating Pictures/ Pictographs
  5. 5. <ul><li>Powerful way to generate non-linguistic representations in the mind. </li></ul><ul><li>Pictograph is just a drawing that uses symbols to represent information. </li></ul>Creating Pictures
  6. 6. First Concept of the Year: “Social Studies…Is a Tree” <ul><li>Culture </li></ul>S.S. Government History Geography Economics
  7. 7. Boring Concept: 5 Themes of Geography <ul><li>Introducing Mr. Lip : </li></ul><ul><li>M ovement, R egion, L ocation, I nteraction, P lace </li></ul>
  8. 8. Boring Concept: Four Major World Religions <ul><li>HI, CJ! </li></ul><ul><li>H induism </li></ul><ul><li>I slam </li></ul><ul><li>C hristianity </li></ul><ul><li>J udaism </li></ul>
  9. 9. Need Ideas? <ul><li>Use the Gallery tab of your Smartboard to get all kinds of pictures and ideas! </li></ul>
  10. 10. (learning using physical movement) Kinesthetic Activity
  11. 11. <ul><li>Specific knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>+ physical movement = </li></ul><ul><li>mental image </li></ul><ul><li>in the mind of the learner. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Specific Knowledge I wanted them to know: <ul><li>Mesopotamia was located in present day Iraq. </li></ul><ul><li>Mesopotamia means “land between two rivers” </li></ul><ul><li>The rivers are the Tigres and Euphrates </li></ul><ul><li>Sumer and Tyber were two major city-states. </li></ul><ul><li>Babylon was the most famous known for its beautiful hanging gardens. </li></ul><ul><li>Hammurabi was the king of Babylon. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Mesopotamia Song <ul><li>I created a kinesthetic song that got them out of their seats and helped their brain retain the knowledge I was trying to teach. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Mrs. Warrell’s Closet Songs <ul><li>SS is a Tree </li></ul><ul><li>Mr. Lip </li></ul><ul><li>Hi, CJ </li></ul><ul><li>Mesopotamia Song </li></ul><ul><li>Egypt Song </li></ul><ul><li>Ancient Greek Alphabet </li></ul><ul><li>Ancient India Song </li></ul><ul><li>Ancient Chinese Dynasties </li></ul><ul><li>Meso-America Song </li></ul><ul><li>Spanish Alphabet (Exploration Period) </li></ul><ul><li>13 Colonies Song </li></ul><ul><li>US state songs </li></ul><ul><li>US capital songs </li></ul>***I was able to teach the northern border US states to my flex class and assess them in just three minutes using a song. All but 3 students could correctly label all of the northern border states just three minutes after learning the song.
  15. 15. Not comfortable moving and shaking? <ul><li>Try having the students take some of your toughest content and have them compete to make a song with movements that will help them retain the information. </li></ul><ul><li>Example : Molly’s Art Elements Song written by Molly, Dave’s Elements of Music Song written by students. </li></ul><ul><li>Make up acronyms and incorporate simple movements. </li></ul>
  16. 16. (combine linguistic and non-linguistic)
  17. 17. Six Types of GOs <ul><li>Descriptive Pattern </li></ul><ul><li>Time-Sequence Pattern </li></ul><ul><li>Process/Cause-Effect Pattern </li></ul><ul><li>Episode Pattern </li></ul><ul><li>Generalization/Principle Pattern </li></ul><ul><li>Concept Pattern </li></ul><ul><li>***Students retain info in the brain by seeing and learning patterns. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Representations of what is being learned
  19. 19. Physical Models <ul><li>A.K.A. “manipulatives” by science and math teachers. </li></ul><ul><li>The very act of generating a concrete model makes an “image” in the students’ minds. </li></ul>
  20. 20. The Key <ul><li>Instead of just having students listen to you talk about the new content or having them read about it, it is essential that you help provide non-linguistic representations to help them develop images in their minds. </li></ul><ul><li>This will help the students retain the concepts you are teaching at greater rates. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Help Them Visualize it in their minds! The Evil Mr. Hippocampus: takes away all the info you don’t regularly use! Help fight against Mr. Hippocampus by giving your students non-linguistic representations!
  22. 22. CCT Time <ul><li>As a team, share the non-linguistic representations that you currently use to teach concepts in your class. </li></ul><ul><li>Are there any NLReps that you could use in all your classes? EX: MR. LIP in SS, The “Toolbox” in Language Arts. </li></ul>
