HOW2s – drawn from evidence

A picture perfect way to learn new teaching techniques.


Simple visuals of skilful teaching

Teachers face walls of words when searching for practical ideas. We’ve cracked this problem by turning descriptions of effective teaching into simple, visual HOW2s.


Seeing what to do

The step-by-step HOW2 guides mean there’s no need to figure out what to do. This visual checklist is a compelling way to learn new techniques.
