At Goodna state school we believe that one of the most effective tools in maximising student growth is the Explicit instruction model (Archer & Hughes, 2011). This mode of instruction involves students being guided through the learning process with clear statements about the purpose and rationale for learning the new skill, clear explanations and demonstrations of the instructional target and supported practice with feedback until independent mastery has been achieved.

At Goodna state school we strive for academic excellence and believe that it is when students are both engaged and successful that they learn the most. This is evidenced through staff involvement in professional development in response to the Explicit instruction model and conitnued coaching and feeback in support of best practice in the classroom.
