Evidence-Based Instruction and Teacher Induction
Because teachers have a significant impact on students’ achievement, it is critical that teachers’ instruction be grounded in solid evidence and be skilled in delivering evidence-based instruction. This brief provides an introduction to evidence-based instruction and how it can be used in the context of a teacher induction process. The brief describes what evidence-based instruction is, its impact on the effectiveness of teachers, how it relates to the Adult Education Teacher Competencies, and key strategies for using evidence-based instruction to improve student achievement.
