  • identified a way to determine where my students are currently at in their learning and the correct level of challenge for them? (either through a diagnostic task or existing data)
  • written achievable learning objectives for the lesson?
  • presented these objectives in a way that is easy for students to understand?
  • provided students with models and scaffolds that allow them to see what success in this lesson looks like? (See explicit instruction for more details)
  • created opportunities within every lesson to collect formative assessment?
