What Is Teacher Clarity?

When teachers are clear in the expectations and instruction, students learn more.

Teacher clarity is both a method and a mindset, and it has an effect size of 0.84 (Hattie, 2022).

It’s teaching that is organized and intentional. It brings a forthrightness and fairness to the classroom because student learning is based on transparent expectations. And when we are clear, our students can better plan and predict, set goals, and acquire a stronger sense of how to judge their own progress.
