Instructional Model

To deliver the highest quality learning programs teachers use our school wide instructional model. The AVWPS Instructional Model is underpinned by the research based Gradual

Release of Responsibility model which provides teachers with a framework for consistency of practice to guide students through the different stages of learning.

Our students watch teachers model tasks, work in small teacher-led groups, practise with peers and independently to increasingly become more proficient in understandings, knowledge and skills.

Throughout the learning process teachers provide students with feedback and support them in setting appropriate learning goals.

Teachers draw on the High Impact Teaching Strategies (HITS) to provide purposeful routines which support confidence, engagement and achievement in our learners.
