Where Great Teaching Begins

by Anne R. Reeves

Table of Contents

Chapter 6. Creating Instructional Objectives

Creating objectives, as we noted in Chapter 1, is a critical part of the "deep design" work that teachers do. It's a process that requires teachers to first garner certain kinds of knowledge and then make clear decisions about how to use this knowledge.

Broadly speaking, an instructional designer needs four types of prerequisite knowledge to establish objectives:

  • Knowledge of curriculum.
  • Knowledge of lesson content.
  • Knowledge of students.
  • Knowledge of the vital role that objectives play in teaching and learning.
