Explicit teaching — without leaving anyone behind
The spread of ability in the classroom makes it difficult to have an impact on individual students, especially with explicit teaching that tries to cover the whole class at once. Those who are not at level can easily become disengaged and fall further behind in their learning.
The right tools for targeting your teaching
Maths Pathway supports teachers to deliver targeted explicit teaching, without the burden of an excessive workload.
The data and resources that Maths Pathway provides allows teachers to deliver ‘mini-lessons’. These lessons are conducted with small groups of students who are learning about the same key concept. In the lessons, students think critically and deeply, reason with their ideas, and discuss the concept with their peers.
Data driven, not admin driven
Teachers have real-time, actionable data at their fingertips so they can focus on what matters most: empowering students to reach their potential. There’s no admin or manual processes required to ensure students have access to the individualised content that they’re ready for.
“Generally each mini-lesson goes for about half an hour. They’re definitely getting rich, hands-on exposure which is important when you teach a new skill and the best thing about it is that I know I’m only targeting the students that are ready for it.”Thomas Moore, Lilydale High School, VIC
Putting it into practice — targeted explicit teaching
Pedagogical research strongly supports explicit teaching as highly effective, which is why it’s an important part of the Maths Pathway model. Mini-lessons provide a safe space for students to explore, question and make connections across mathematical ideas that they have learned when working individually. Watch how Maths Pathway schools are using mini-lessons to help students build their mathematical understanding.
