• Highly Effective Teaching Education Model

        The Highly Effective Teaching model is a brain-compatible model grounded in the biology of learning, effective instructional strategies, and the development of conceptual curriculum. Formerly known as ITI (Integrated Thematic Instruction) and developed thirty years ago, the HET Model has been successfully replicated nationally in educational institutions serving rural, urban, and suburban communities. It includes proven strategies and methods for student learning, teaching and administrative management. Independent research has provided evidence of significant gains in student achievement using the Highly Effective Teaching Model.

         The Highly Effective Teaching (HET) Model provides a way of conceptualizing the orchestration of a BodybrainCompatible learning environment by implementing the science of learning (how the brain learns) and its implications within the classroom for schoolwide improvement. Originally developed by Susan J. Kovalik as the ITI (Integrated Thematic Instruction) Model and continually updated, the Highly Effective Teaching Model is currently used in hundreds of school districts across the United States and locations throughout the world. Regardless of the language, culture, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status of the student community, its outcomes are the same: quantum leaps in student achievement and a lifelong love of learning.
