Transcript

  • 1. “Students cannot  assess their own  learning or set  goals to work  toward without a  clear vision of the  intended learning.” Stiggins, Arter, Cahappuis &  Chappius, 2004 http://www.flickr.com/photos/evilerin/3093851614/
  • 2. When they do try to assess their own achievement  without understanding the learning targets  they have been working toward,  their conclusions are vague and unhelpful. Stiggins, Arter, Cahappuis & Chappius, 2004, pp. 58‐59 http://www.flickr.com/photos/chaparral/382859222/sizes/o/
  • 3. Classrooms where students understand the learning  outcomes for daily lessons see performance rates  20 percent higher than those where  learning outcomes are unclear. Marzano, 2003
  • 4. Writing student friendly learning  targets simply involves beginning each  target with an approachable phrase like  “I can” or “I am learning to,” defining  uncommon words in an  age‐appropriate way, and including  an action that can be observed. (Stiggins et al., 2006) 
  • 5. 7.4.3. Performance Standard: Describe the role of the trans‐Saharan  caravan trade in the changing religious  and cultural characteristics of West  Africa and the influence of Islamic  beliefs, ethics, and law.
  • 6. 7.4.3. I Can Statement: I can describe how the Saharan caravan  trade influenced the lives of people living  in Western Africa.  This means I can detail  three specific examples of how the caravan  trade led to changes in the cultures,  religions, and laws of this region.
  • 7. This is much better than those  objective sheets that they hand  out in the beginning of the school  year. I like that it is in 'kidspeak' so  that we can all  understand the objective! Parent Survey Response, 2009
