Ayse Alanci, team leader and Year 3/4 teacher demonstrates how to effectively establish a learning environment that illustrates the learning intentions and success criteria for students in a numeracy lesson. This approach complements the visible learning methods adopted by Ayse’s team to enable consistency of purposeful practice, where students are given opportunities to regulate and self-assess their understandings of the relevant numeracy skills and concepts. Acknowledging the diverse range of students with English as an additional language or dialect (EAL/D), Ayse illustrates the benefits of visual learning and consistent use of mathematical language as a strategy to reduce cognitive load whilst connecting new with previous learning. Ayse demonstrates various styles of effective teaching instruction through the facilitation of explicit teaching groups assisting her with understanding where students are in their learning and celebrating the progression students have made when reflecting on their learning maps.
