Explicit Instruction

 

Research indicates that Explicit Instruction (or Direct Teaching) is a highly effective teaching strategy, particularly when students need to acquire new knowledge or skills. At Raceview State School, we use Explicit Instruction as the model through which all new content is taught.

Students:
- Know exactly what expectations are and how to be successful
- Use common language to talk about their work
- Develop student accountability
- Helps students to focus

Teachers:
- Provides a common language to talk with students about their work
- Feedback can be more focused
- Planning for lesson can be more focussed
- Focusses on individual successes and needs
