Explicit teaching

Explicit teaching - Students experiencing difficulties are likely to require more intense and explicit instruction (Graham & Harris 2005). This might include:

  • additional explanation

  • preteaching of prerequisite knowledge, strategies and skills for new learning

  • repeated modelling

  • the implementation of teaching steps that are further broken down into smaller

    steps (Mastiopierri & Scruggs 2002)

  • additional teaching and learning experiences at each phase of learning (acquisition,

    fluency, maintenance, generalisation)

  • instructional scaffolding
