Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (Writer/Producer). (2006). Best practices in action: Using analogies to enhance background knowledge. Alexandria, VA: Author.
This 28 minute DVD is designed to be used in teacher inservices, meetings or workshops to demonstrate the use of analogies to build student background knowledge of academic subjects. This is a research-based instructional strategy. Teaching students to identity similarities and differences by creating analogies can help them apply this higher order thinking process as they study new information. A Texas Teacher of the Year demonstrates how she uses analogies in her diverse 3rd grade classroom as she introduces material in a social studies lesson. (view in card catalog)
