Specifying Instructional Objectives: A Learning Package.
Armstrong, David G.; Savage, Tom V., Jr.
This module for the classroom teacher is intended to help the teacher realize specific aims in instructional practice. Objectives outlined for the teacher are: (1) to be able to distinguish between broad goals and instructional objectives; (2) to be able to identify the characteristics of an instructional objective; (3) to be able to describe the general categories of instructional objectives; and (4) to be able to write instructional objectives precisely. The teacher should be prepared in an instruction session to clearly identify what each student is expected to do and the limits of what should be accomplished. An understanding that the learning process consists not only of intellectual activity but also physical activity (sight, touch, etc.) is important in teaching successfully. It is also essential that the teacher encourage enthusiasm and interests in the student so learning will be pursued beyond the classroom. At the conclusion of this guide, a competency check is presented for the teacher to assess his/her knowledge of the objective originally outlined at the beginning of the paper. (JD)
