Teaching Tip: Lesson Objectives

 
 

 
Lesson objectives are one of the most vital parts of an effective lesson plan. Objectives provide a guide that allows the teacher to make sure that all the information taught is necessary to the main goals of the lesson. They also help teachers measure what the students have learned and achieved. Here are some guidelines to follow when writing lesson objectives.
  • Write from the students' perspective rather than from your own perspective. Use phrases like: "The learner wil... or "The student will..."
  • Be specific so the students achievement can be measured e.g. "The student will be able to understand and explain the different processes of the water cycle..."
  • Explain how the objective will be achieved e.g. "The students will be able to understand and explain the different processes of the water cycle through reading a PowerPoint presentation."
  • Use simple action words to avoid overly complicated objectives such as "create," "highlight," understand," and "use..."
