    Doug Lemov

    What is this strategy about?
    Use specific, concrete and observable directions to tell pupils what to do as opposed to what not to do. Pupils could be off-task because they are defiant, they can’t complete a task due to their ability, or they see a grey area and take advantage of it.

    Why is it important to give clear instructions?
    Clear and precise is important to ensure that students understand exactly what you want them to do without any misunderstandings or assumptions.

    How do I put this into place in my classroom?
