Explicit Lessons

Making the learning visible

Students need to know the WHAT of each lesson

What are they going to learn?

What do they have to do?

They need to know HOW each lesson is going to progress?

HOW are they learning the material?

HOW do they do the task?


Give them examples that show them what they are to do and how to do it.


Students need support to achieve more difficult tasks. They can not always progress without scaffolding.
