WHAT TO EXPECT.
Explicit Instruction: Explicit instruction is a way to teach in a direct, structured way. When teachers use explicit instruction, they make lessons crystal clear. They show kids how to start and succeed on a task. They also give kids plenty of feedback and chances to practice
Systematic Instruction: A carefully planned sequence for instruction, similar to a builder’s blueprint for a house characterises systematic instruction. A blueprint is carefully thought out and designed before building materials are gathered and construction begins
Flexible: An approach that allows for flexibility where pace can be slowed down or sped up as needed
Diagnostic: Continual assessment of a student's abilities to understand and apply concepts. It also allows for reteaching if needed
