Teacher Clarity: A Catalyst to Student Clarity and Success

Monday, June 12, 2017 - 3:30pm PDT

Presented by Kara Vandas

When teachers have a deep understanding of what students must know and be able to do, the rate of student learning can double (Hattie, 2012). What’s more, teacher clarity leads to greater student clarity, which empowers students to take greater ownership over their learning, goal setting, and proving their learning. Join Corwin author and consultant, Kara Vandas, to explore the simple but powerful practices that you can begin implementing to streamline instruction and assessment, and drastically accelerate learning. 


Teacher Clarity for Literacy & PLC+ Institutes

Imagine students who describe their learning in these terms: "I know where I'm going, I have the tools I need for the journey, and I monitor my own progress." Now imagine the extraordinary difference this type of ownership makes in their progress over the course of a school year. Corwin’s  PLC+ Institute provides attendees with a practical and evidence-based framework to support collaborative structures to support planning and implementation of student learning, as well as professional learning (e.g. microteaching, classroom observations) of the teachers and teacher leaders.

Teacher Clarity: Making Learning Visible for Students

Tuesday, November 13, 2018 - 3:30pm PDT

Presented by Douglas Fisher and John Almarode

With an effect size of .74, which is well above average, teacher clarity is low-hanging fruit when it comes to students’ learning. We can choose to increase clarity tomorrow and reap the benefits. Just ask Doug Fisher, coauthor of The Teacher Clarity Playbook, and John Almarode, coauthor of Clarity for Learning. Teacher clarity just requires that you know what students need to learn, communicate learning intentions and success criteria to students, and deliver lessons in a coherent way so students will learn more. Attend this webinar for expert insight on how to get started.

Imagine the possibility of tripling students’ rate of academic growth in the span of just one year. Such a vast leap sounds like a dream, but the research tells us that accelerating learning in this dramatic way is not just a far-reaching hope; in fact, it’s doable for every teacher, in every classroom. Providing students with a deep understanding of specific learning intentions and success criteria brings a type of clarity that results in just that kind of exponential acceleration.  This webinar will introduce participants to practical methods that can significantly accelerate learning for all students by ensuring both teachers, and their students, are absolutely clear about what students need to learn, why they are learning it, and how.
