The Learning Renaissance

17 Teaching Principles of Effective Instruction | TeacherToolkit

Thanks to Ross Morrison McGill’s powerful Teacher Toolkit site for republishing this document which first appeared in the American Educator in 2012, and providing a commentary to go with it.

I particularly like point 17 as it gives a signpost to the direction of travel that you want all your students to navigate – that to becoming independent and autonomous learners with the attitudes, behaviours and competences to function effectively in the challenging work beyond school.

Ross’ commentary on the 17 points gives greater detail.

Using all 17 gems of advice systematically will do much to make you an effective teacher, and your students effective and purposeful learners. Thank you to Professor Barak Rosenshine for the original post, which provides systematic thinking and reflection on learning.

About educationalist04

I'm convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans. The solution is learning - creating independent and autonomous learners who can problem solve, innovate and create a better more equitable and sustainable world. My books, Future Proof Your School and Re-Examining Success together with this blog, explore how better learning outcomes for all can be achieved.
