Each participant of the Teacher Clarity Playbook CLC will work through the modules in the text over several months. We will kick off the book study on August 25th via Zoom, where we will deep dive into what teacher clarity means and how it applies to the classroom. We will also engage in the work of Modules 1 and 2. Each month thereafter through the schedule outlined below, participants will engage in creating learning intentions and success criteria to use towards building student assessment and learning experiences directly tied to the skills and content of the standards. We will be using Moodle to work through the modules and meet via Zoom from 3:00-4:30 pm about once/month to connect and learn together.
