Teachers are most likely to improve student learning when they address specific learning outcomes in their planning. Purposeful planning provides teachers with opportunities to plan instructional activities that focus on content standards with fidelity while heeding district and state guidelines. Thus, purposeful planning allows teachers to implement standards-based practices effectively and consistently in their classrooms. It also provides time for teachers to understand academic content vertically, answering the questions of what has been taught, what needs to be taught, and what will be taught in future grades. Finally, it provides structure that encourages teachers to identify essential academic vocabulary and plan how they will support targeted words during instruction. Teachers will learn to look closely at the verbs and content included in the TEKS in order to understand the implied rigor and depth of knowledge requirements. This information will then be used to construct interactive, conceptual word walls and plan powerful, age-appropriate vocabulary building experiences for students.
