Explicit Teaching

This blog post adds more to my previous post on using metalanguage in the classroom. This is the first time I have encountered explicit teaching (I do, we do, you do) and the use of WALT, WILF and TIB while out on prac. Going on a couple of other student’s blogs (click here and here), the use of these strategies seems as though it is becoming more widely used in order to make learning objectives more clear to students. It is all part of the backward mapping process that is being made visible to students and written in child-friendly language.

From my experience, I found that it is very effective in that it focuses students on the task at hand; they know what they are doing and why they are doing it. It makes learning more meaningful and provides a clear focus for the teacher also.
