Florida Practice Profiles

The Florida Department of Education’s Practice Profiles clearly define the best practices of core reading instruction in a way that is teachable, learnable, doable, and assessable in practice. These practice profiles are research-based, aligned to effective reading instruction, and related to Florida’s Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking (B.E.S.T.) Standards.

Review the practice profiles below. Each includes the definition and an example of accomplished use and ineffective use for five profiles: explicit instruction, systematic instruction, scaffolded instruction, corrective feedback, and differentiated instruction. Videos of instructional examples for “accomplished use” in the classroom are also provided for the profiles.
