A Model for Great Teaching

Published in the Great Teaching Toolkit: Evidence Review, the Model for Great Teaching offers a curriculum for teachers’ professional learning. It provides a common professional language and a shared structure for enabling Great Teaching.

Teachers matter more to student achievement than any other aspect of schooling. Raising the quality of teaching within schools is likely the single most effective method we have for improving student attainment and equity.

The Model for Great Teaching is a summary of the best available research evidence on the things teachers do, know and believe that has the biggest impact on student learning. It serves to help teachers more easily make better decisions about what they can best do to improve the quality of their teaching.

The Model is freely available for you and your colleagues to use.

These free downloads are intended to help spark professional conversations in schools and colleges throughout the world about the elements of great teaching.

At the heart of the Great Teaching Toolkit is the Model for Great Teaching. The Toolkit includes teacher courses and lead programmes which relate directly to dimensions and elements of the Model. Delivered online, our courses and programmes all incorporate structured collaboration with colleagues, as well as activities to plan, implement and evaluate pedagogical approaches in your context.

The instruments in the Toolkit take the form of student surveys. Designed by Prof Rob Coe and trialled in schools, these instruments are easy to administer and give teachers accessible and actionable feedback about their practice.

Students respond to questions relating to their classroom experiences in each of the four dimensions from the Model for Great Teaching. You can try a free sample of the Toolkit here.

    Part 2 combines a number of different theories (Flow, SDT, Attachment) that are built on different philosophical positions about human nature. Why are all those theories combined into one?

    Part 3 contradicts part 2 because you haven’t explained what you mean by consequences; for most people this means punishments. Can you please clarify what you mean by consequences?

      What you say about different philosophical positions sounds very interesting. Can you elaborate on that?
