This newly updated module reviews the latest research and encourages educators to reach consensus around their shared understanding of what constitutes high-quality instructional practice.

This module includes research and information around the following topics:

  • What is effective instruction?
  • Ways to determine which instructional practices are effective with your students.
  • The emerging trends in the area of effective instruction.
  • How to plan and design engaging lessons and units.
  • How to identify effective teaching strategies.
  • Classroom practices that support opportunities to learn for all students.

The content in this module is intended to align closely with the content of the OLAC modules on Curriculum and Assessment because of the need for the educator to realize the interrelationships of the three concepts--Curriculum, Assessment and Instruction.

This module aligns with the follow areas in Ohio’s Leadership Development Framework:

  • Area 1: Data and the Decision-Making Process
  • Area 3: Instruction and the Learning Process
