About PD Pack-Presentations, Artifacts, and Collaboration Kit

Description: In this practice-based learning opportunity (PLO), we provide an example of how structured video analysis is used to develop knowledge about and successful implementation of HLP #16: Explicit Instruction (EI). In this activity, candidates are presented with the components of EI and have the opportunity to observe it virtually in action and analyze it. This activity addresses the first stage (“Introducing and Learning About the Activity”) of the Learning Enactment Cycle described by McDonald and colleagues (2013). As candidates are watching the video, they are cued to stop at various points and reflect on aspects of EI as well as analyze their own practice. This final stage falls under the fourth stage of McDonald’s Learning and Enactment Cycle.
