Instructional Teaching Approach

GANAR

G = Goal/Objective
A = Access Prior Knowledge
N = New Information
A = Application
R = Reflect/Generalize

GANAR is a teaching schema for master learners in which students learn to retain information for larger periods of time and can remember and apply the information or procedure.
 
Using this schema regularly, teachers become instinctive to teaching to the master learner. They design lessons deliberately to:
  • prepare students for learning
  • help students connect new information to prior learning
  • cement ideas and skills
