The Cycle of Effective Instruction and Assessment for Learning

The Cycle of Effective Instruction and Assessment for Learning Staff Meeting

Summary of Content

  • The SfA teaching and learning model, The Cycle of Effective Instruction, is explicit that Assessment for Learning must be part of effective practice.
  • The training explains the gradual changes in a lesson cycle starting with initital teacher modelling and explanation followed by the children actively engaging in peer teaching and then demonstrating individual mastery of the learning. This is the Cycle of Effective Instruction.
  • This training is designed to build an understanding of how to use AfL in SfA.
  • There is an opportunity for staff to reflect on how these strategies can be incorporated more effectively into their practice.

How will this benefit staff?
