I recently attend a conference where we discussed explicit instruction, specifically as it applies to content learning and writing. To review, explicit instruction is a four step scaffolded process. Step one is to provide a clear explanation. Step two involves the teacher modeling the process. Step three engages the learners in guided practice with elaborated, corrective feedback, and step four continues the scaffolded practice with independent practice. Again, this step includes feedback. Within our discussions of explicit instruction there were some questions as to how to implement explicit instruction in settings that may include one or more of the following scenarios: multiple levels of learners, classes that include several content areas, both ABE and EL learners, and/or settings in which teachers provide instruction individually. Please share how you use explicit instruction within the unique setting in which you provide instruction.
