8. Lesson Structure

When routines and procedures are taught, modelled, and established in the classroom, students know what is expected of them, they feel secure and they are able be more independent. 

Having predictable patterns in place allows teachers to spend more time on meaningful instruction and interaction.

Structures and routines are subject to variables; the subject area, the age of the students, the cohort, the lesson content, the objectives, and even the weather! The key is that teachers are responsive to their students’ learning and adapt the lesson structure to achieve the most productive outcome for all.

QFT achieves a balance between providing familiar structures and routines and teacher/student control over timings, arrangements, personality and style.
