Explicit Instruction Project

Lynwood Senior High School, WA

The research is clear - the most effective way a school can enhance student results is to improve teaching quality. International studies over many years have shown students with highly-effective teachers learn more over a given time period and significantly out-perform students with poor teachers.

Lynwood Senior High School, in Perth’s south, wants to boost student results by providing them with the highest quality teaching. Targeted strategies have recently improved attendance and literacy and numeracy skills, although overall NAPLAN results are still below national averages. Nearly 40% of students are in the bottom quarter of socio-educational advantage and almost half speak a language other than English at home, including many from a refugee background who have had limited or no schooling in their native language. The school has a strong focus on wellbeing as many students have experienced trauma.

Lynwood wants its students to continue to surge ahead by improving teachers’ ability to give dynamic lessons. Your support will help the school develop a research-based, instruction framework focusing on a teaching method called Explicit Instruction (EI) – an interactive style of lesson delivery that has boosted student grades across the world.

EI is a holistic system of what’s called “I do, we do, you do” teaching. Under EI, teachers set clear goals, and identify and target areas of most need. The teachers fully explain all tasks to the children, and constantly ask questions to make sure they’re learning. Students are then encouraged to practise skills learnt as much as possible. Year 7 teachers will first trial the EI project before it is then rolled out across the whole school.

Your support for the EI project will enable the school to engage an EI coach and provide the teacher release that is crucial to teachers building the skills and planning lessons using this new approach. Through this project, the school also plans to work with local primary schools to model EI and increase its impact, so that in time, many students from this region may become the first in their families to finish high school or go on to university.
