Explicit instruction is systematic, direct, engaging and success-oriented and is essential in teaching content that students could not otherwise discover (Archer, 2011). This full day workshop will cover the features of explicit instruction based on the delivery strategies that support the lesson design. Participants will explore the basic tenets of explicit instruction and the benefits for all students including those with learning difficulties. It is suitable for teachers and education assistants in a primary school setting, although secondary teachers are welcome.
