Enacting a series of lessons
Lessons have to be planned to enable the development of progression and depth in knowledge, understanding and skill, and in the motivational interest of the learner. For further ideas about the role of planning in teaching and learning, see:

Drawing on the work of a range of authors, O'Brien & Guiney offer an analysis of the implications for learning of different forms of differentiation, whilst McNamara & Moreton provide practical guidance. Taking account of individual differences is one theme of Muijs and Reynolds’s wide-ranging book.
