Writing Meaningful Learning ObjectivesEisenhower High SchoolTuesday, September 18, 20123:15-4:15 PM11AgendaWelcome Teresa LanceRoad mapping of PD opportunities for 2012-2013 Teresa LanceWriting Meaningful Learning Objectives Mac MooreEvaluation Teresa Lance22This Afternoons ObjectiveFollowing implicit instruction in what makes a meaningful learning objective and demonstrations of how to write them, participants will work in groups to analyze and, if necessary, improve an objective from todays lesson;share their work with the larger group.33What is a meaningful learning objective?Meaningful learning objectives contain specific, observable, and measurable learning outcomes.

44Four Components:conditions (the set-up for success), audience (students),behavior (the action verb the most important element), standard (here standard means measurable action)55Checklist for Meaningful Learning ObjectivesDoes it contain the four basic parts (condition, audience, behavior, standard) stated in precise, observable, measurable terms?Is the objective aligned to state standards and/or Common Core standards?Does it tell what the learner will be able to do at the end of the lesson?Is it realistically obtainable during the activity?66Sample SS ObjectiveSummarize changed perceptions of Africaconditions (the set-up for success), audience (students),behavior (the action verb the most important element), standard (here standard means measurable action)77Sample SS ObjectiveStudents will summarize their changed perceptions of Africa.conditions (the set-up for success), audience (students),behavior (the action verb the most important element), standard (here standard means measurable action)88Sample SS ObjectiveAfter reading a variety of passages and constructing maps, students will summarize their changed perceptions of Africa.

and constructing maps, students will summarize their changed perceptions of Africa through an oral presentation to the class.Does it contain the four basic parts (condition, audience, behavior, standard) stated in precise, observable, measurable terms?Is the objective aligned to state standards and/or Common Core standards?Does it tell what the learner will be able to do at the end of the lesson?Is it realistically obtainable during the activity?1111Sample Math ObjectiveStudents will measure and calculate the surface area of rectangular prisms found around the house.conditions (the set-up for success), audience (students),behavior (the action verb the most important element), standard (here standard means measurable action)1212Sample Math ObjectiveHaving taught the appropriate formulas and established their practical use, students will measure and calculate the surface area of rectangular prisms found around the house.conditions (the set-up for success), audience

action)1616Sample Science ObjectiveStudents will analyze how humans interact with the water, carbon, and energy cycles by adding the effects of teacher created scenarios to their drawings.conditions (the set-up for success), audience (students),behavior (the action verb the most important element), standard (here standard means measurable action)1717Sample Science ObjectiveUsing drawings they have already created, students will analyze how humans interact with the water, carbon, and energy cycles by adding the effects of teacher created scenarios to their drawings.conditions (the set-up

participants will work in groups to analyze and, if necessary, improve an objective from todays lesson;share their work with the larger group.2525Give It a Try: DirectionsWork in groups, no larger than four.Pick one objective from a lesson plan taught today.Analyze it to see if it has all four parts, if not, work together to add them.Check it against the Checklist for Meaningful Objectives.Record your final product on a sheet of chart paper, underlining the original objective.Share out with the larger group 1) what your group started with and 2) how you changed it and why.2626Give It a Try: SampleAfter reading a variety of passages and constructing maps, students will summarize their changed perceptions of Africa through an oral presentation to the class.2727Give It a Try: Share OutBRIEFLYShare the original objective.Share your final product and the thinking that went into it.
