Clear Learner Objectives

San Antonio AllianceUncategorized

This school year, the district has a focus on clear learner objectives, daily demonstrations of learning, and active student engagement strategies.  The “clear learner objectives” is simply a focus on communicating the objective in a way that means something to the students.  Is the intended learning clearly understood?  The “daily demonstrations of learning” are the types of formative assessments and monitoring that teachers do on a daily basis to check on whether students are understanding what is being taught.  Deputy Superintendent Emilio Castro has said, “We are not concerned with rigid execution but quality conversations between principals, teachers, and students around clarity of intent, direction and accurate measure of success.”
