Abstract

This paper describes the lesson practices at one very remote school that has been highly successful in numeracy. Drawing on a significant body of diverse research that promotes quality teaching and learning, this case study describes the features of the practice that have been implemented across the school. Teachers’ voices provide both justification for the adopted practices and insights into why the practices have been effective within the context of the school. Finally, consideration is given to the on-going sustainability of changed practices within the school.
