Best Practice: 17 - Purposefully Teach

When instruction is purposeful, a goal is identified and the complete instructional process is focused squarely on that goal. Educators who are purposeful continuously keep the goal in mind. They understand that the entire instructional process—data collection that informs instruction, teaching, and assessment—must all be driven by the defined goal. Even when instruction is not successful, educators know the purpose for each strategy employed.
