Instructional strategies are techniques teachers use to help students become independent, strategic learners. These strategies become learning strategies when students independently select the appropriate ones and use them effectively to accomplish tasks or meet goals.
Instructional strategies may include individual, group, and whole class activities. Large classes can be a challenge but there are techniques that can work. In general, engaging students is part of each technique that forms your instructional strategy.
