ENHANCING OUR PRACTICE

"WRITING BEHAVIORAL OBJECTIVES"

What should be considered when writing behavioral objectives?


  1. The learner (age, ability level, etc.)
  2. Skills/Concepts to be taught (comparing The Bahamas with other countries of the world, the importance of tourism, comparing animal groups, etc.)
  3. Strategies to be utilized (Jigsaw, puppetry, raps, poetry, PowerPoint presentations, etc.)


Bloom’s Taxonomy

(a classification system used to arrange thinking according to six levels of complexity)


  • Lowest three levels of thinking or responding - knowledge (remembering), comprehension (understanding) and application (applying).


  • Highest three levels of thinking or responding - analysis (analyzing), evaluation (evaluating) and synthesis (creating).


Components of Behavioral Objectives

For example:

Following a discussion on biomes…

Outcome Competencies - describes what the student will be able to do after instruction (these must be specific, observable and measurable behaviors).

For example: List, justify, create, etc.


Criteria for assessment - states the standards of Performance pertaining to the speed, accuracy and quality of achievement.
