Australia’s national education evidence body

As teachers prepare for their first full year in the classroom since 2019, our resources can play an important part in supporting you to deliver your lessons and helping your students to achieve.  

Underpinned by both science and classroom evidence, our resources describe and outline teaching practices that have been proven to be most effective in helping students to learn. 

Our aim is to present these approaches in the most concise and accessible way possible, and to make it easy for you to incorporate them into your lessons.

Our latest support resources

As it is for teachers, the beginning of the year is a busy time here at AERO. Already we have released a new set of group facilitation guides and videos as part of our partnership with Ochre Education. We have also added background content explaining the cognitive science behind explicit instruction, formative assessment, mastery learning and spacing and retrieval teaching practices.

Over the coming weeks we will be adding even more content, including new writing practice guides, a numeracy practice guide, annotated unit and lessons plans (created with Ochre Education) and more!

Tried and Tested practice guides by AERO

Tried and Tested practice guides

Our Tried and Tested suite of guides are written especially for teachers and educators and outline teaching practices that have been proven to make a difference to learning outcomes for children and students.

The guides cover four key individual teaching approaches, along with a fifth guide examining classroom management. You can read them individually or as a set. Each guide provides a step-by-step outline of what the practice is and how you can implement it in your classroom


Practice areas

Strategies for engaging families from culturally diverse backgrounds, families with English as an additional language, and families from refugee backgrounds, elaborating on the ‘promising approaches’ outlined in AERO’s family engagement for learning practice guides.


The science behind effective teaching practices

You can rely on the teaching techniques and lesson resources on this page as they are based on sound, proven practices and backed by evidence.

Find out more about the science behind our Tried and Tested practices, and why they work, on each practice page:


Applying teaching practices in the classroom - videos

Applying practices in the classroom

Reading about the theory is one thing, but it’s also helpful to see and understand how others have applied these practices in their own classrooms.

We spoke to teachers from a range of schools about how they’ve applied Tried and Tested practices in their lessons:

Lesson resources

The lesson resources produced as part of our partnership with Ochre Education are fundamentally based on the Tried and Tested practices. Ochre Education recently spoke to three of their contributing teachers about how they apply these practices in their lessons.

OCHRE Group Facilitation Guides

Group facilitation guides

Sharing and learning from each other’s experience within a workplace can also be an extremely valuable and informative exercise.

Together with Ochre Education, we have created a series of new guide resources that provide suggested outlines for facilitating group sessions, using Ochre Education’s conversations with contributing teachers as starting point for discussion.

These guides examine mastery learning, formative assessment and explicit instruction in maths, English and science lessons.
