Structural Learning helps students organise information, make connections and think critically. This improves comprehension of the key concepts that your learners need to grasp.
All knowledge has a structure. These structures are made up of connected ideas that form concepts. Timelines, Hierarchies and Causational Relationships are easier to understand if we focus on how it 'fits together'. If we visualise, connect and elaborate on the key points we are in a good position to understand 'The Big Picture'.
Being able to see our thoughts considerably helps us develop and communicate our understanding.
Using spoken language helps to mediate thinking, deepening our comprehension of new ideas.

Structural Learning causes pupils to engage with the key ideas you are exploring in class. Focusing in on the key concepts and vocabulary can unlock the meaning hidden behind dense pages of syntax.
