During the month of October, all schools received a refresher on Essential Questions and Clear Learning Targets. The goal was to reinforce research-based instructional practices that are already in place to ensure that we have a clear, district-wide understanding of the terms and expectations.
Marzano (2005) related that students who understanding what they are learning perform up to 27% higher than students who do not. By ensuring our EQs and CLTs are directly aligned to the content standards, we implement this research into our everyday practice.
