The Shifting Paradigm | edtechdigest.com:

 "The typical instructional sequence beyond the early grades (K-3) of teacher-led core classes consists of explanation/lecture/discussion > practice > test, with reading and assignments provided in a textbook outside of class. Typically, there is little provision in such instruction designed to assess incremental learning along the way to identify the basis for re-teaching to address gaps in student knowledge as each new concept is introduced and “taught” but not necessarily well-understood. Knowledge gaps not addressed accumulate, and students may fall behind and never develop more than a superficial understanding of the material."
