GOLD STANDARD TEACHING PRACTICES

  • Each student receives necessary instructional supports to access content, skills and resources; these supports are removed when no longer needed.

  • Scaffolding is guided as much as possible by students' questions and needs; the teacher does not front-load too much information at the start of the project but waits until it is needed or requested by students.

  • Key success skills are taught using a variety of tools and strategies; students are provided with opportunities to practise and apply them, and then reflect on progress.

  • Student inquiry is facilitated and scaffolded, while allowing students to act and think as independently as possible.
