From 8.15 am to 3.30pm
Professional Development Workshop with Dr Lorraine Hammond
What is Explicit Instruction? A Practical Guide
Currently, many schools across Australia are taking up and instruction-centred approach called Explicit Teaching. Some of these high performing schools have been featured in the media and in reports (http://grattan.edu.au/report/turning-around-schools-it-can-be-done/) because they add value to student learning and in some instances “out perform” their post code.
The purpose of this session is to clarify what Explicit Instruction is and is not. by providing an overview of the theory behind the Explicit Teaching Model participants will be able to identify the essential elements of an Explicit Teaching lesson.
Explicit Instruction is a “Tier 1” Response to Intervention and participants will view videos of early years and primary school teachers demonstrating Explicit Instruction as a measure to prevent literacy based learning difficulties. A sample lesson will be provided in this practical workshop for participants to try in their classroom.
