Ten Ways to Improve the Quality of Instruction in Lessons

Rosenshine’s principles of instruction have been described as the ‘best bit of educational theory out there’ – but are they fully understood and implemented? Evidence tells us that the quality of instruction is one of the most important factors affecting learners’ achievement. Alongside this, the ‘teacher-student’ relationships remain key to success. This course is suitable for those new to teaching, for managers who want to use these principles to support teachers or as part of lesson observation or professional development, or anyone who feels they could do with a refresher.

  • In-depth study of Rosenshine’s ten principles
  • Ways to adapt those principles to suit our context
  • Evaluating the impact of instruction
  • Practical activities to develop teacher skills in instruction
