Presenting Instruction

Indicator 26 - Instructional Delivery UETS 2e., 3e., 4a., 6b., 6c., 7g.

Effective teachers integrate all elements of instructional delivery including goals, expectations, questions, demonstrations and applications. They relate the lesson to objectives, and throughout the lesson review main ideas and subordinate ideas as appropriate, always providing clear directions. Instructional Delivery is an examination of your entire lesson and the strategies incorporated into the lesson.
