Definition: Clarity for teachers is the compilation of organizing instruction, explaining content, providing examples, guided practice, and assessment of learning. (Fendick, 1990). It then involves communicating the learning intentions, the Why behind the learning intention, the success criteria and examples of success, and feedback about progress to students. (Hattie, 2012)
