This booklet is about the most effective methods of teaching and presents ten research-based principles of instruction. These principles come from three sources:


(a) research on how the brain acquires and uses new information;
(b) research on the classroom practices of those teachers whose students show the highest gains; and
(c) findings from studies related to students’ learning strategies.

The ten principles which are discussed are:

  • Daily review
  • Present new material using small steps
  • Ask questions
  • Provide models
  • Guide student practice
  • Check for student understanding
  • Obtain a high success rate
  • Provide scaffolds for difficult tasks,
  • Independent practice
  • Weekly and monthly review
