Explicit teaching

I Do – Teacher modelling

We Do – Checks for understanding

You Do – Demonstrate independent learning

Explicit instruction at its core is the belief that all students can learn the skills they need to reach their full potential.  At Bungaree Primary School teachers break down essential skills into their many parts and guide students until they have mastered each step with learning embedded into the child’s long term memory.

Each literacy and numeracy lessons begins with a warm-up that recites, recalls and applies previously taught content. Students use Whole Body Listening at Bungaree Primary School to switch on their brains for learning. Specialist teachers apply this model to their content area.

Explicit teaching involves developing a learning environment where teachers can teach and students take ownership of their own learning.
