Connecting students to learning through explicit teaching

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Building a culture of learning within today’s classrooms requires teachers and students to jointly engage in teaching and learning that is purposeful, relevant and clearly defined. In contemporary educational media ‘explicit teaching’ has been highlighted as an effective approach to literacy pedagogy that directly influences literacy learning.
Understanding what explicit teaching is, calls for teachers knowing how the social dimension of classroom life (through the context of classroom interactions) enters the pedagogy of literacy and constructs the learning environment.
