Teach Like a Champion
Technique #32
SLANT


“NO matter how great the lesson, if students aren’t alert, sitting up, and actively listening, teaching them is like pouring water into a leaky bucket.”

KEY IDEA: An acronym that contains the five key behaviors that maximize students’ ability to pay attention.

Sit up.
Listen
Ask and answer questions.
Nod your head.
Track the speaker.

Variations:
STAR (Sit up, Track the speaker, Ask and answer questions like a scholar and Respect those around you)
S-SLANT (adds Smile)

From Teach Like a Champion by Doug Lemove (Jossey Bass, 2010)
