Presenting a theoretical background as well as concrete strategies for classrooms, this resource speaks to teachers about the necessity of becoming effective “explicit” instructors and provides the instructional tools to do the job. The resource walks teachers through the explicit structure – from introduction to implementation- breaking down the practice into manageable units and providing scripted lessons and models EI in practice.

The primary focus is on the “how” of becoming an effective teacher. Teachers will be able to gain expertise by mastering small chunks of information from the framework, and help students master new skills and strategies.
