How can you take ideas from cognitive science and explicit instruction and use them to enhance teaching and learning in your secondary English lessons?

Based on contemporary research findings and supported by a range of classroom examples, this accessibly written book demonstrates how cognitive load theory, Rosenshine’s Principles of Instruction, explicit instruction and broader cognitive science ideas can be applied to the teaching of English in secondary schools. 

Key topics include: 
  • Explicit teaching of grammar and writing
  • Deliberate practice to improve student writing
  • Broadening students’ vocabularies
  • A guide to instructional sequencing
Tom Needham has been teaching for over fifteen years and currently teaches English in South London.
