Rosenshine’s Principles

We use Rosenshine’s Principles, based on research in effective teaching, to underpin all of our lesson delivery. They emphasise clear instruction, practice, and feedback. Key points include:

  • Start a new lesson with a brief review of the previous lesson.
  • Introduce new material in brief steps with student practise following each step.
  • There needs to be a limit to the number of material students deal with at one time.
  • Give easy to understand and detailed instructions and descriptions.
  • Ask many clear questions and test students understanding.
  • Guide students when they start to practise.
  • Offer a high-quality and active practise to the students.
  • Model steps and think
  • Use worked-out problems as models.
  • Ask learners to demonstrate what they have learned.
  • Check each student’s response to the teaching.
  • Provide corrections and systematic feedback.
  • Spend ample time of the class in providing explanations.
  • Provide concise explanations
  • Re-teach complex material whenever needed.
  • Students must be prepared to perform the independent practise.
  • Students must be monitored during the independent practise.
