Are there benefits to transparent instruction?


In researching effective practices in the classroom, I came across this blog post on creating transparent assignments. Building on the research of Mary Ann Winklemes from University of Nevada, the ideas of assignments with purpose, tasks, and criteria are at the center of instruction. At the heart of her ideas, students need to find purpose in their school work. Beyond that, students need directions on how to complete tasks in the classroom, with clarification through rubrics so students can identify how to meet expectations and complete quality work.

Using her format, how do you provide transparent instruction? 

I'm looking foward to your comments.
