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

It also includes a fun activity that demonstrates the power of images when revising. This would make an excellent start to the revision process, or even an assembly for Year 11 students as they begin the exam season.

Stage 4 - How do I use it? 1 PowerPoint on using the PEE chain to use the research. This would be an ideal way of starting a project or piece of work that requires the students to research independently. The principles apply to all year groups.
