Elements of Effective Instruction

The Institute to Credential Special Learning Needs Resource Specialists 2016 is in full swing with a highly motivated and persistent group determined to learn all they can to better serve their students with or without funding!

Today we discussed elements of effective instruction and some of the key areas were:

  • Establish consistent  classroom routines
  • Make expectations clear
  • Develop and follow lesson structure
  • Demonstrate activities
  • Emphasize the use of techniques/strategies  
  • Use effective questioning
  • Provide many opportunities for practice
  •  Provide consistent and useful feedback
  • Review previously learned materials  
Please share your ideas of  how you  lay a foundation for effective instruction to foster learning.
