Teachers normally display a range of teaching practices in the course of a lesson. Both the overall quantities of specific practices used, and the way in which teachers distribute their time to individual students, are likely to be important for student learning, whether cognitive or affective. This paper examines a range of lesson activities at the levels of the classroom and the individual student, taking into consideration variations in student engagement rates during the different activities. Relationships between the activities and student outcomes are also investigated.
