Module Two: Assignment One
What are some advantages to writing both content and language objectives for students to hear and see?
- they allow the teacher to focus on planning and teaching
- they assess progress to mastery
- they guide student learning
- they help support language development
Constant assessment is necessary in teaching all students not just ELLs. In the video, Vogt (n.d) also highlights assessment as being "a constant cycle of assessment, teaching, reteaching, assessing again..." I believe that writing content and language objectives is important and it is an area that I need to work on. Even though I do include them in my lesson, I often fail to write them in student friendly language and to use them as an assessment at the closing of my lesson.
