AAIS Teaching For Understanding (TFU) Cycle Posters

The AAIS Teaching for Understanding Cycle is a planning and professional learning framework that addresses the following questions related to instructional planning and delivery:

  • What are the most critical standards to teach?
  • What are the embedded concepts and skills within the standard?
  • What are the concepts that we expect students to retain for the rest of their lives?
  • How should we sequence the learning of skills and concepts?
  • How will we know students are learning?  When will we conduct deliberate checks for understanding? How will we know students have learned?
  • What instructional strategies are the most effective for achieving the learning targets?
  • How will I adjust instruction based on the formative data I receive?

Reciprocal Teaching Role Cards

The AAIS Reciprocal Teaching Role Cards support students as they engage in reciprocal teaching tasks by clarifying the expectations of each role.  In addition, each role card has role-specific sentence stems to help develop a student’s ability to communicate effectively in an academic setting.

CLICK HERE to download a description of the strategy!

Since each role card is color-coded, they may be used to signal a group’s readiness (green) or lack thereof (RED) to the teacher.  Teachers, at a glance, may quickly assess the readiness of a class of students.



AS AN ADDED BONUS:  The reverse sides of the role cards may be used for participating in multiple-choice questioning sessions.

$6.50 for the first pack of 40 cards + USPS Priority Mail shipping.
