As a former teacher who often struggled to relate to her students due to demographics and educational background, I can say with certainty this worked:

"And reflection should be thought of as the ‘original act’ of goal alignment. This is likely why it produces the outcomes it does in classrooms, by aligning the goals of students and teachers. And prioritizing greater skill of reflection can help educators contribute to this important societal challenge."

When my students understood and could articulate well what my objectives were for their learning, they not only became more connected to our learning community, but were more passionate about the content. They also more actively contributed to our classroom dialogue when we set goals for ourselves for the future.
