What is evidence-based teaching and evidence-based instruction?

ETR offers a number of evidence-based and evidence-informed programs for youth. Evidence-based programs have been scientifically evaluated and demonstrated effectiveness in achieving desired outcomes. Evidence-informed programs have not been the subject of a formal research study, but do incorporate key characteristics research has identified in programs that have been found to be effective in changing health and risk behaviors.

All programs ETR selects to publish:

  • Are based on theoretical approaches demonstrated to be effective in reducing health-related risky behaviors.
  • Target clearly defined health behavior outcomes.
  • Have statistically significant results from a rigorous research study.
  • Use multiple learning activities and strategies.
  • Feature interactive and cooperative learning approaches.
  • Provide training and support for teachers.

The experienced ETR editorial and design staff help make these programs accessible, user-friendly and cost-effective so schools and other agencies can replicate results.

More information about our evidence-based programs can be found at ETR’s Program Success Center website.
