11 May Review the “Writing Objectives and Learning Goals” template and the topic Resources for samples of measurable learning objectives
Review the “Writing Objectives and Learning Goals” template and the topic Resources for samples of measurable learning objectives. Teachers must align all lessons and assessments to content standards. Typically, each standard is broad and should be broken down into teacher-written learning objectives in order to plan lessons. Teachers write learning targets that are aligned to standards for each specific lesson in order to narrow the focus of the lesson.
For this assignment, you will write learning objectives and analyze lesson plans for their alignment.
Part 1: Learning Objectives
Using the “Learning Objective Table,” identify a grade level, select a math and English language arts (ELA) state standard, and write a learning objective for each content area standard you chose. The table clearly identifies what you want students to know and be able to do in an ELA lesson and in a math lesson.
Note that a learning objective is aligned to the standard and includes both a statement of what the student is to know and do because of instruction and the criteria for evaluating performance.
