Daily Assignment #91: 7 Steps for Effective Instruction

Researchers have found that to make instruction more
  1. Begin a lesson stating the objectives.
  2. Do a quick review of previous learning.
  3. Present new material in small steps, have students practice after each step.
  4. Give clear and detailed instruction and explanations.
  5. Provide a lot of practice.
  6. Check for understanding.
  7. Provide feedback and corrections.
This does take time, but you will notice an increase in students' understanding.  So, it is worth the effort.

  1. Thank you for this quick guide for effective lesson planning. I really like that the 'I do, we do and you do' teaching style style can be done by following a simplified process as this. I can use this as a checklist when planning lessons also.
