Bridging the gap between research and teaching practice

This is a very good article based on an extract from Carl Hendrick’s book, which is based on bridging the gap between research and teaching practice. The article highlights six principles which are a distillation of key research on what really matters in the classroom. One of the six principles focusses on the benefits of revisiting previous learning. This is an excerpt from the article relating to this, as quoted from Rosenshine.

“The most effective teachers in the studies of classroom instruction understood the importance of practice, and they began their lessons with a five- to eight-minute review of previously covered material. Some teachers reviewed vocabulary, formulae, events, or previously learned concepts. These teachers provided additional practice on facts and skills that were needed for recall to become automatic.”
