By engaging in deep learning, our students become creative, connected and collaborative learners. Students gain knowledge and skills for lifelong learning.
Classroom Learning at Cranbourne East Secondary College
Our college has developed an Instructional Model to reflect our high expectations of how students and teachers work together to help us continually improve. Our Instructional Model guides teachers to design, and deliver, the best possible learning opportunities for all students.
It is designed to guide students though the phases of classroom learning. It gives students support to be active learners who; understand the purpose of each lesson, work towards their learning goals and reflect on their growth.
The aim of our Instructional Model is for teachers to help students take on more responsibility for their learning as they work through the phases of the model.
Our instructional model represents students’ importance at the centre of teaching and learning. The 5 phases of learning create a cycle, beginning at Engage and working through Explicitly Teach, Practise, Apply and Evaluate and Reflect. Students work through the phases increasing their independence and responsibility for their learning and use the essential questions to monitor their progress through the cycle.
