Knowing Your Learning Target
Moss, Connie M.; Brookhart, Susan M.; Long, Beverly A.
Educational Leadership, v68 n6 p66-69 Mar 2011
No matter what we decide students need to learn, not much will happen until students understand what they are supposed to learn during a lesson and set their sights on learning it. Crafting learning targets for each lesson and deliberately sharing them with students is one way to give students the direction they need. Targets that tell students what they need to learn, how well they need to learn it, and how they will demonstrate that learning give lessons purpose. In this article, the authors discuss the importance of learning targets and offer ideas to help teachers integrate learning targets into their lessons.
