The High Impact Teaching Strategies provide specific guidance about instructional practices that reliably increase student learning wherever they are applied. They have been drawn from the findings of tens of thousands of studies of what has worked in classrooms across Australia and around the world.
The HITS provide a clear link between the ‘Evidence Based High Impact Teaching Strategies’ dimension of FISO and classroom practice. Teachers can plan and adjust their practice in response to one or more of the HITS and monitor the impact on student engagement and learning outcomes. This resource provides a focus for the professional development efforts of individual teachers, which can be linked to the goals and feedback components of their own Performance and Development Plans.
