Principles of Instruction

In 2012, Barack Rosenshine published the Principles of Instruction: a set of 10 research-based principles of instruction, along with suggestions for classroom practice. The principles come from three sources: (a) research in cognitive science  (b) research on master teachers, and (c) research on cognitive supports.

On this page, we gather a collection of guides for how the principles might be applied to different phases and subjects. The guides have been written by practising educators in the UK.
