What does ESA mean?

E (Engage): to be engaged or participated in the study.
S (Share and Study): to have interactions with the teachers and the peers in the process of the study.
A (Activate): to use whatever learned to deliver some presentations, lessons and seminars, and to demonstrate one’s own understanding.

The conception of ESA via the practice of 3Cs

Collaboration: to study cooperatively by participating and sharing.
Curiosity: to imagine with curiosity. (Curious and Imaginable - Video)
Creation: to initiate reflections, ideas, suggestions, and the awareness of something new or different. .  (Creative – Human Brain)

Collaborative Learning

 By collaborative learning, it means that “an approach to teaching and learning in which classrooms are organized so that students work together in small co-operative teams” (Richards, Platt & Platt, 1992).

Johnson and Johnson (1989) illustrates that collaborative learning is a classroom environment where students interact with one another in small groups while working together on academic tasks to attain a common goal.

 Lee, NG & Jacobs (1998) viewing more on its social functions suggest that collaborative learning is organized and managed group work in which students work cooperatively in small groups to achieve academic as well as affective and social goals.

Power Teaching

Big Six:

1.Class-Yes
2.Five Classroom Rules
3.Teach-Okay
4.Scoreboard
5.Hands & Eyes
6.Switch                                                                                        

Class-Yes

Use the Class-Yes whenever you want your students’ attention. You may use it fifty times a day. It is much more efficient and entertaining than saying “now, class, I want you to pay attention. Johnny stop that. Marie, put your pencil down…” (loudly) CLASS!

THE FIVE CLASSROOM RULES

Rule 1: Follow directions quickly!
Rule 2: Raise your hand for permission to speak!
Rule 3: Raise your hand for permission to leave your seat !
Rule 4: Make smart choices!
Rule 5: Keep your dear teacher happy!

Teach-Okay

Teachers must learn to speak more briefly. The longer we talk, the more students we lose. Notice that I have been speaking briefly, all through my presentation.
Two decades of educational research demonstrates that students learn the most when they teach each other.

The Scoreboard

Now, let’s get to the Motivator … the part of our system that motivates students to work hard. The Scoreboard. When I make a mark on the Frowny side, I want you all to raise your shoulders and give me a Mighty Groan, like this …. awwww! Wait until I point at you to make the Groan.                                                                                                                                                                                                 Use the Scoreboard to reward for positive behavior and penalize for negative behavior. Be sure your students have fun with it. That’s why we encourage the Mighty Oh Yeah and especially the Mighty Groan. When you penalize your students, you can alienate them … but when they give a Mighty Groan, they’re on your side, following directions and having fun.

The Plus – Minus 3 rule

Never let the difference between Smilies and Frownies be larger than 3 points. If you reward too much, your students will lose motivation. If you punish too much, they will quit trying. If you have a rowdy class, then find an excuse to give a Smiley. Point at some student and say, “Juana earned a Smiley for everyone. Give me a Mighty Oh Yeah!”

If your class is really well behaved, thank your lucky stars … but find an excuse, even an imaginary one, for giving a Frowny. “Oh, we have a few students in the back who aren’t trying extremely hard! Here’s a Frowny!”

Hands and Eyes

Whenever you want to make a big point, totally focus your class, you say “hands and eyes.” Your class repeats “hands and eyes”, folds their hands and stares at you.

Switch

In our classes we have chronic yackers and chronic listeners. We want the chronic yackers to learn to listen and we want the chronic listeners to start talking. So, imagine I have counted you off in 1’s and 2’s. I want the 1’s to be the teachers, use gestures, teach everything I’ve taught you. I want to the 2’s to be the students, use listening gestures, encourage your teacher. When I shout “Switch!”, I want you to shout “Switch!” and then the 1’s will be the students and the 2’s will be the teachers.
