Learning Targets by Susan Brookhart and Connie Moss

Learning Targets: Helping Students Aim for Understanding in Today's Lesson

Robert Marzano

Recorded July 17, 2012

Improving student learning and achievement happens in the immediacy of an individual lesson or it doesn’t happen. After all, that’s how kids live their learning and that’s how effective teachers plan for their students. Based on ideas from her upcoming book of the same name, this webinar from Connie M. Moss shows how learning targets help teachers create daily lessons and learning experiences that amount to something enduring and meaningful over time.

Learn how to place learning targets in the hands of your students to give them choice and voice. As full partners in the teaching and learning process, students can learn to take charge of their own learning; set their own goals; assess the quality of their own work; and choose the most effective strategies to improve their work, as they are producing it.

None of this is possible, however, without three key elements in each lesson:

  • A learning target and student "look fors."
  • A performance of understanding.
  • A formative learning cycle that feeds learning forward.

In this interactive webinar, Moss will share examples from her extensive work in the classroom that will help you put these game-changing elements to work for you and your students in today’s lesson and every lesson.

    I like that the notes separate out the school levels and how this is shown in each level.
