Explicit teaching

Edwards Groves says Explicit teaching is critically about clarity in:

  • knowing the learner
  • responding to the learner
  • implementing focused lessons
  • reflection and review

See the article by Christine Edwards-Groves here:

In the context of Learning by Design explicit teaching is dependent on explicit design. Edwards-Groves goals of clarity in knowing the learner, responding to the learner and implementing focused lessons are achieved by deliberate design using the Knowledge Processes as a scaffold for the process. The designs created, combined with the artefacts collected by the Teacher Researcher, lead to achievement of Edwards-Groves final goal reflection and review.

Edwards-Groves goals are readily achievable with Learning by Design.
