Independent practice requiring deep thinking, with a high success rate.Pupils think hard about the meaning of what is being learned in learning tasks that require high levels of thought. This allows for fluency and consolidation in long term memory.
Target pupils during independent practiceTeachers target pupils that need further support.
Guiding of first practiceTeachers guide pupils as they practice new skills and use new content for the first time. This corrects errors in real time and eradicates misconceptions
Pupils practice after each stepPupils practice after each small step and master it before moving onto the next step.
Lots of questions which includes all pupilsTeachers ask lots of questions. Teachers use whole class questioning techniques which assess, consolidate, and develop the learning of all pupils in real time.
Modelling and worked examplesNew skills are fully modelled by teachers. Teachers think aloud when answering questions and solving problems, to allow pupils to observe expert thinking.
Concise explanations linked to prior learningTeachers provide concise and precise explanations to overcome competing stimuli. New learning is fully linked to prior learning to ensure full understanding.
Small step teachingLearning is broken down into small steps to help with the limitations of working memory
Review questioningTeachers ask lots of questions to consolidate and embed prior learning.
