Presenting theories and strategies for classrooms, this resource provides a contemporary middle ground for teachers who reject traditional direct instruction approaches, but who acknowledge that many students–-particularly in today’s inclusive classrooms–-need instruction that is explicit and meaningful. Focusing on the “how” of becoming an effective educator, author Jennifer Goeke guides readers as they gain expertise by mastering small chunks of the explicit instruction framework, mirroring the process of teaching students how to master new skills and strategies.
“Written in the true voice of a teacher; I could identify with many of her comments.”

“I am very impressed with the simplicity of the content presentation…it is logical because it moves from simple to more complex ideas, and well proportioned in that it covers a manageable portion of information at one time.”
--Adelt Al-Rataineh, Illinois State University
