excellence in literacy via INTENTIONAL TEACHING

The intentional teacher is one who constantly reflects on his or her practices and makes instructional decisions based on a clear conception of how these practices affect students. Effective teaching is neither a bag of tricks nor a set of abstract principles; rather, it is intelligent application of well-understood principles to address practical needs (Slavin, Educational Psychology: Theory and Practice, 2012)
