Tip 7 – Do not give long instructions orally

Do not give longer or complicated instructions only orally, especially not in lower level classes. Instead write the instructions on a notecard and display them using a notecard displaying tool. Advantages:

  • Students can follow what you are saying by reading the notecard┬á
  • Students who cannot hear you can still read the instructions
  • Less explaining needed thus less Teacher Talking Time ­čÖé
  • Fewer questions will arise and thus there will be more time left for the actual activity.
