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.

    Title: Writing a Pirate Story – Story Plan Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    In this fourth lesson of the five-part “Writing a Pirate Story” series, students work with a partner to write a story plan for their pirate story. They will use this plan, along with the mind map from previous lessons, to write their final story in the last stage. This collaborative approach helps develop crucial thinking and learning skills that research shows are key for successful learning.

    Not only does the pirate theme engage students in a fun and motivating way, but the lesson is fully scaffolded to support literacy skill development. Students learn how to structure a narrative into beginning, build-up, climax, resolution and ending. They also practice using capital letters, punctuation, tense and point of view correctly. The focus on paragraphing teaches students when to start a new paragraph based on changes in setting, character, time, dialogue and action.

    By working together in pairs, students benefit from collaborative learning as they share ideas, give feedback, and learn to communicate effectively. The mind maps and story plans provide thinking scaffolds to break down the writing process into manageable steps.

    I would give this lesson 5 out of 5 stars. The engaging pirate theme, focus on essential writing skills, and collaborative, scaffolded approach make it an excellent resource for teaching English in an evidence-based, student-centred way.
