Much has been written on the value about Barak Rosenshine’s ‘Principles of Instruction’ (2012) so there is no need for me to add much more to this except by sharing the following: some ways of accessing his ten principles (or seventeen if you read further on), some opinions on why this is a ‘must-read’ for teachers from a high-profile blogger on teaching and some reflections from a teacher who has attempted to put Rosenshine’s principles into practice.
In brief, Rosenshine outlines a range of research-based strategies that provide teachers with practical ideas to improve learning. These principles are well worth the time it takes to familiarise yourself with and put into practice.
