Teacher clarity has an effect size of .75: “Spend more time working through their notions of what success looks like in terms of the balance of surface and deep before they teach the lesson” (p. 86). The table below illustrates ways in which CFA 2.0 supports teacher clarity.


“Pressure to cover the entire curriculum… too often leads to superficial instruction and shallow student understanding.”
(p. 54)

(p. 62)

“Big Ideas communicate to students the benefi t or value of learning the standard in focus.”
(pp. 77-78)

“Learning progressions [are] instructional pathways that will enable their students to fully understand and achieve the unit learning intentions.”
(p. 177)
