Education Matters #4
Finding out what works..
Research to support your teaching and CPrD projects
The report by Prof Coe had extensive media coverage last Friday, mainly for some of the things that the evidence suggested did not impact upon student attainment. These surprisingly include
- using lavish praise
- grouping student by ability
- using preferred learning styles
- discovery learning
Key factors for teachers raising attainment are
- Quality of instruction, subject knowledge and explanation and knowledge of how students think in their subject area and their misconceptions
- The use of effective questions and assessment
The project can be found here and would encourage all of you to read this report
