21st Century Learners & Common Core

Day 2 - Learning Targets

Activity One

Devise some questions/hypotheses you have around Learning Targets and dig in!

1- What are learning targets? Let's use the ASCD study guide... We can also useeducore.ascd.org and find some definitions. Can you explain the similarities and differences between learning targets and essential questions/course objectives/competencies/standards?

2- Why should we use them? Verify the effect of not using them in the classroom

3- Why are we studying them in this class? Look at page 9.

Put on your blog/flyer those things with which have you reflect on what learning targets are and why they are important
