teachTeach is the component we all do. The WHAT IF model hopefully illustrates that a lesson is more than just the part we traditionally recognise as teaching.

In the Teach phase of the lesson the bulk of the work is carried out, with the class engaged in the main activities that are designed to challenge prior misconceptions and introduce new concepts, intriduce new skills and provide opportunities for practice.

Whilst most of us feel comfortable in how we carry out the Teach component of the WHAT IF model, there are many strategies that we can add to our teaching tool box that can give our lessons variation and freshness.
