The Magic is in the Instruction: Application of Explicit Instruction (K-5)

Date: June 8, 2017
Times: 8:30am-3:30pm

The magic is in the quality of instruction...not in the newest fad. Powerful teaching including the use of bell-to-bell instruction, clear lesson purposes, structured lessons with an introduction, body and closing, embedded formative assessment, active participation, effective feedback, and judicious practice is what makes a difference in the classroom. When these elements are consistently and effectively used, learning results.
