The Evidence Based Lesson Plan

The Evidence Based Lesson Plan

(0)
Rather than wasting time on gimmicks, the latest educational fad or relying on hunches and guesswork, the Evidence Based Lesson Plan template is based entirely on the latest research about what actually works in the classroom. The key findings from Barack Rosenshine's review of cognitive science and classroom studies ('Principles of Instruction - Research Based Strategies that every teacher should know') are used to create an easy to use four part lesson plan template. Each component of the plan is clearly linked to the research to give the teacher every chance of delivering a highly effective lesson. The template also builds in differentiation by encouraging the teacher to think about their class as three distinct groups - lower, middle and higher ability. The resource is made up of a two page Word document and PowerPoint template: Word Document Page 1 - the lesson plan template. Page 2 - the research, clearly linked to each component of the lesson. Please note - this critical, detailed explanatory page is not visible on the preview images. Powerpoint Template A basic template ready for content to be added. Prompts on each slide. See the notes panel at the bottom of the screen in edit mode for the links to the research findings. The research paper is referenced in a recent TES article which can be found by pasting the following link into your browser: https://www.tes.com/news/school-news/breaking-views/are-these-7-pillars-classroom-practice

These 5 handouts give your students the essential skills to be able to produce a top quality magazine cover, contents page or article.

These are the handouts I have used for 3 years to help generate A grade GCSE and A Level work. 1. Cutting out images (so you can overlap the masthead and create montages on the front page) 2. Creating consistent section and article headings on a contents page 3. Creating a contents page ensuring it is in columns and also showing how to download cool fonts 4. Using the mask tool to place a model over the masthead without having to cut them out 5. Running text around a shape and adding drop caps, for example at the start of an article Disclaimer: They do assume a little knowledge and initiative!
