Instructional Model

At Yinnar Primary School, we are committed to providing our students with the highest quality of education through an evidence-based approach to instruction. Our philosophy is grounded in the Science of Learning, ensuring that our teaching methods are supported by research and proven to be effective. We prioritise knowledge-rich curriculum as we firmly believe that a strong foundation of knowledge is essential for students to become critical thinkers and problem solvers. 









Explicit Direct Instruction


Yinnar Primary School promotes the consistent use of Explicit Direct Instruction (EDI) in every classroom. Explicit instruction involves directly teaching students the content or skill to be learned, using clear and unambiguous language. It encompasses research-based instructional practices explored by cognitive and educational researchers. Explicit instruction is characterised by carefully planned and sequenced lessons, clear and detailed instructions and modelling, and frequent and systematic monitoring of student progress and feedback to students. Teacher modelling and then teacher guidance is followed by scheduled opportunities for practice. Student/teacher interaction is very high and student engagement is essential.
