Direct instruction and explicit teaching can offer you a shorter, straighter route to developing effective learning in your classroom.
In this smart and accessible book, Greg Ashman explores how you can harness the potential of these often misunderstood and misapplied teaching methods to achieve positive learning outcomes for the students you teach.
It investigates key foundational principles, combined with thoughtful commentary on what these mean in classroom practice and an examination of relevant research and theories from cognitive psychology that substantiate these approaches to teaching and learning.
