     Putting the Pieces
          Together
• At each of your tables, there are bags of
  puzzle pieces.
• Each participant should get a bag and record
  a key idea/learning on each of the puzzle
  pieces in his/her bag.
• As a group, using all your puzzle pieces, put
  your puzzle together and then discuss/share
  key ideas from the session.
             THE BIG PICTURE
• As a group, using all your puzzle pieces, put your
  puzzle together and then discuss/share key ideas from
  the session.
   – Guiding Questions:
      • What are some common key ideas among the group?
      • What did one person pull to the forefront that others had
        not considered?
      • If you look at the puzzle as a whole, what are the
        essential understandings the staff will garner from this
        training?
      • How will these understandings change or enhance
        multicultural education at your school?
       ADULT LEARNERS:
       TIPS FOR TRAINERS
Adults learn best when:
  – The learning is connected to the background of
    knowledge and experience that the adult brings
    to the table.
  – The learning is received and processed in more
    than one way.
  – The learning is collegial and directed at solving
    specific problems.
  – There is ample opportunity for reflection.
       Adult Learning Application
Reflect upon today’s session:
• Think about where the strategies for adult
  learners were employed.
• Think about which of the thirteen proven
  instructional practices were incorporated into
  today’s presentation.

Turn to a neighbor and share.

Share with whole group additional
strategies that work with adult
learners.
