What works best in practice
This paper was originally published 24 April 2020.
What works best in practice supports teachers to implement the evidence-based themes outlined in What works best 2020 update. It provides strategies and case studies against eight key teaching practices that are known to improve student outcomes.
The eight themes are:
- High expectations
- Explicit teaching
- Effective feedback
- Use of data to inform practice
- Student assessment
- Classroom management
The themes provide a useful framework for teachers to ensure their practices in the classroom align with the evidence. The strategies in the document are a great starting point for practical implementation and the case studies provide some examples about how other schools have approached these practices. As always, it is important to consider the strategies within the unique context of your own classroom and school environment.
- Our What works best: 2020 update lays out the research and data behind each of the eight themes.
- The School Excellence Framework supports school leaders take a planned and whole-school approach to improvement. The eight themes closely align with the School Excellence Framework.
