Organisers are frameworks or bodies of research that assist teachers in organising an array of skills, tactics and strategies into a coherent set of teaching methods. They are the lenses that clarify or enhance thought about how we instruct. Organisers increase teacher wisdom about the teaching and learning process, based on the needs and inclinations of the learner. For example, by appealing to students’ intelligences other than the traditional logical-mathematical and linguistic, teachers can devise tactics and strategies that can powerfully influence student learning. Similarly, emerging research on the human brain and on diverse learning styles can also inform approaches to more effective instructional practices.
