Proven Practice Delivers

Many strategies that can boost the effectiveness of teachers – or increase the octane of their instruction – are hiding in plain sight. Despite the consensus of education experts and the fact that these evidence-based instructional strategies have persistently demonstrated positive impacts on student performance, they are generally given short shrift in teacher training, often displaced by strategies that have little to no evidence behind them. In the spirit of “finding the good and praising it,” we offer videos that describe these high-octane strategies or show them in practice.


For each instructional strategy, we also provide a source from which teachers can get more information. We hope teachers will help us build our library for each strategy by sending us videos of these strategies in action in their classrooms.
