Element 5 - Clarity

Why is this important?

Clarity means that your learning targets, explanation or directions are transparent, explicit, and well-organized. The real test of clarity is whether you have been understood well enough by learners for your instruction to be actionable. That is, can almost all of your students, with their different learning styles, and varying levels of attention and executive function follow what you are saying and understand what you would like them to do. It sounds easy. It's not. No matter how clear YOU think you are, if many students are confused then it is time to find ways to clarify.
