Description

These evidence-based learning (EBL) lessons are based on classroom practice that has been proven, by research, to maximise thinking, learning and attainment. From an extensive review of educational research, we identified the eight key classroom thinking and learning skills that were common across these research papers. We named these eight key skills “EBL skills”.

EBL skills have been proven by research to maximise learning because they combine the most productive thinking skills with the most effective learning behaviours. Each of our evidence-based learning lessons uses the English curriculum as a framework through which the eight EBL skills are delivered.

Teachers also have the opportunity to add to their own skill set or refresh their existing skills with our five-minute CPD activity, based on one of the EBL skills used in this lesson.

    Teachers – Magical New Lesson on Paragraphs and Dialogue – Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    I’ve discovered an enchanting KS2 English called “Stanley, Head Elf Inspector and New Paragraphs”. This charming resource earns top marks for covertly developing advanced skills!

    This lesson explores the rules around paragraph structure and writing dialogue, using the story of a stranded elf inspector as a hook. Activities consolidate learning, with students completing cloze passages on the key rules.

    As well as literacy goals, these activities build vital evidence-based abilities like critical thinking, metacognition and self-assessment. So students learn key writing skills while incrementally developing their advanced learning skills.

    There’s even a 5 minute CPD excerpt on the proven benefits of self-assessment, allowing you to magically enhance your professional knowledge.

    So if you’re looking to cast a spell on your students with a super English lesson that secretly conjures up higher order talents, this elf-themed resource comes highly recommended.
