Rosenshine Re-ordered. A Poster by @olicav

This blog post is simply a way to direct people to this lovely new poster by the mighty Oliver Caviglioli about the brilliant Rosenshine Principles of Instruction.  I first encountered Principles through Oliver’s original poster.

To my great joy, Oliver was very enthusiastic about this subtle shift and has now re-created the whole thing using this re-sequencing to make a fabulous new poster  that you can access from his site here: Download
