HLP #16: Use Explicit Instruction

This video introduces and defines high-leverage practice (HLP) 16 and demonstrates four key components of this HLP through video exemplars from in-service practitioners. The four key components highlighted in this video are the importance of using a logical sequence with lessons, providing clear models and explanations of content, providing multiple opportunities to respond and give appropriate feedback, and providing a range of examples and nonexamples to highlight the content being taught.

How the videos are designed:

  • Introduction and definition of each HLP
  • Brief review of the research
  • Several brief videos of general education and special education teachers implementing the practice

What the videos are:

  • A resource to augment training/professional learning
  • A demonstration of HLP practice across degrees of intensity
  • A portrayal of teachers’ implementation of an HLP
  • A demonstration of practices that can be used with all students, not only those with disabilities

What the videos are not:

  • A complete resource for training/professional learning
  • A demonstration of each tier across various settings
  • A depiction of all features of quality instruction/student engagement
  • Promoting the use of practices that would replace the need for intense, data-driven decisions and interventions provided by special educators or other specialists
