Structured Pedagogy: For real-time equitable improvements in learning outcomes

Working paper


The goal of structured pedagogy is that all children gain foundational (literacy and numeracy) and transferable (social and emotional) skills, as an essential grounding for ongoing learning and for life and work.

The proposed Structured Pedagogy Framework is a practical and implementable model that draws from an ever growing evidence base (including the new Smart Buys report) on the impact structured pedagogy interventions can make to improve learning outcomes.

The model integrates five components: teacher professional development, teaching and learning materials, formative assessment, caregiver engagement delivered through an effective management and accountability system. 

This working paper has been written to inform discussions between governments, teachers, civil society and international partners in education to achieve tangible improvements in children’s learning outcomes.
