On the Art of "Winging It."
Olsen, Jeanne; Snyder, Barbara
"Winging it" becomes necessary when something unexpected comes up and the teacher has to improvise at the last minute. The successful "winger" has to plan ahead. Three factors in the planning are to have an overhead projector at one's disposal; to seat pupils in groups of four from the start; and to collect material from magazines, children's games, greeting cards, and any other source. Some quick lesson plans include having students make and share lists related to the lesson content, complete fill in the blank exercises with a partner, play jeopardy in teams, and play discovery using a transparency and in teams. A final suggestion is to involve the students in preparing class materials, called "winging-it specials." (AMH)
