Bharati Baichan 12/03/2020 Topic 1: Discussion 1 Select a math or ELA standard and grade level. Share the standard and create a learning objective that aligns with the standard. Review your classmates’ learning objectives and provide feedback. Learning Objectives are brief, clear, and specific statements of what students should accomplish by the end of the lesson. These objectives are used at the beginning of a lesson to establish a foundation for students to work towards meeting the learning standards. I chose the common core 1 st grade ELA standard on Craft and structure. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.1.5 Explain major differences between books that tell stories and books that give information, drawing on a wide reading of a range of text types. Learning Objective : Students will be able to describe major differences between books that tell stories and books that give information, based on a wide range of reading types.
Bharati Baichan 12/03/2020 Topic 1: Discussion 2 What is the purpose of introducing the learning objective to students? Provide two examples of ways to communicate learning objectives. Why is it important to introduce the learning objectives before beginning a lesson? The purpose of introducing the learning objective to students is a guide for students to work towards during lessons. It is a goal for students to achieve at the end of a lesson and eventually it is expected of students to grasp the concepts by the end of the year. While in grade school, I remember my teachers writing the learning objective on the board and having us, students, re- writing it in our notebooks before starting the lesson. Then we would have a brief classroom discussion on what the learning objective is about and the goals we are going to achieve after the lesson. Learning objectives also help teachers monitor students’ progress. It is important to introduce learning objectives before beginning a lesson because as much as it is a guide for students, it also guides teachers to stay on topic during instruction and helps teachers to select appropriate materials and teaching strategies (Schoenfeldt & Salsbury. 2009, pg.7). Two examples of ways to communicate learning objectives are by writing it for students to visually see it and narrating it and explaining it verbally. When communicating the learning objective by writing it on the board, it is a constant reminder of the goal we want students to achieve. By explaining the objective verbally, teachers can explain in depth what students will be learning and allows students to ask questions about the learning objective. Reference: Schoenfeldt, M.
