What is it?
Instructional learning formats measures ways in which teachers maximize children’s interest engagement, and ability to learn from lessons and activities. In classrooms with effective instructional learning formats, teachers provide instruction using many modalities such as visual, oral, and movement, look for opportunities to actively engage children, and facilitate learning during group lessons, centers, and one-on-one time.
Why is it important?
Children who are interested and engaged in classroom activities and lessons learn more. By facilitating active interest and engagement, teachers ensure that children will get the most out of the instructional opportunities presented in the classroom.
