Instruction must be aligned to a coherent set of learning outcomes, indicating what students should know and be able to do. Dimensions for consideration when planning for instruction include the following.
Instructional Delivery: Instructional delivery is differentiated relative to explicitness through modeling, systematic instruction with appropriate scaffolding and pacing, and provision of immediate corrective feedback to students with sufficient opportunities to respond.
Grouping: Grouping includes whole group, homogeneous small group, partners, heterogeneous mixed ability small group, independent and one-to-one.
Time: The amount of instructional time varies relative to a particular area of content, small group instruction versus whole group instruction, and opportunities for students to interact or work independently.
Materials: Selecting materials for specific students and purposes is often a challenge. Materials should be evidence-based and adjusted to meet the needs of students.
Learning Environment: A positive and safe learning environment has clearly defined and consistent expectations.
