Part 1: Learning Objectives
Using the â€œLearning Objective Table,â€ identify a grade level, select a math and English language arts (ELA) state standard, and write a learning objective for each content area standard you chose. The table clearly identifies what you want students to know and be able to do in an ELA lesson and in a math lesson. Note that a learning objective is aligned to the standard and includes both a statement of what the student is to know and do because of instruction and the criteria for evaluating performance.
Part 2: Deconstruct Lesson Plan
Research and identify a lesson plan online that includes a standard and learning objective. In 250-500 words, deconstruct and critique the alignment of the chosen lesson plan to the standard. Your critique should answer the following questions: Is the lesson aligned to a standard? Does the learning objective state what students need to know and/or do because of instruction? Is the content of the lesson aligned to the learning objective? What changes or revisions might you make to this lesson plan to ensure its alignment to the standard and learning objective?
