We are living in what is called a “Clarity Crisis”— the perfect storm of daunting standards (especially California’s goal that every EL achieve English language proficiency and master the same challenging content standards as native speakers), new assessments, and potentially new curriculum. Teacher Clarity can be defined as clear learning intentions, clear success criteria, and clear learning progressions for every unit of study which empowers students to eventually own their own learning. With an effect size of .75, Teacher Clarity supports and makes student achievement possible, including creating Assessment-Capable Learners.
However, if the teachers aren’t clear on these goals, how can our students be? The Clarity process begins with designing a unit of study which is focused on mastering success criteria for one learning intention for the unit. Join Steve Ventura at the Teacher Clarity Institute and learn how to design every step of the Clarity Process, including understanding the “what” and the “why.”
