Principles of Instruction: Research-Based Strategies That All Teachers Should Know
Rosenshine, Barak
American Educator, v36 n1 p12-19, 39 Spr 2012
This article presents 10 research-based principles of instruction, along with suggestions for classroom practice. These principles come from three sources: (a) research in cognitive science, (b) research on master teachers, and (c) research on cognitive supports. Each is briefly explained in this article. Even though these are three very different bodies of research, there is "no conflict at all" between the instructional suggestions that come from each of these three sources. In other words, these three sources supplement and complement each other. The fact that the instructional ideas from three different sources supplement and complement each other gives teachers faith in the validity of these findings. (Contains 14 endnotes.)
