[Teach the Teacher] Visual Instruction Plans

Visual Instruction Plans

VIPs are a way to present new information to students who don’t seem to understand what to do after you have just finished explaining the material.

VIPs present instructions to a student in “picture” format one step at a time.

The purpose of a VIP is to reduce the amount of time you (the teacher) spends in one-on-one “tutoring” mode. It also helps students to become more independent workers.
