Writing Effective Learning Objectives-HSU Course

Humboldt State University Subject & Catalog: EDUC x701
Class Number: 31266
Units: 1
Price: $115

Lesson planning can be one of the most stressful aspects of an educator’s job, even for the most veteran educators – but it doesn’t have to be. This post-baccalaureate-level, provided in collaboration with Humboldt State University examines the first step in the process of backwards planning design: Writing Learning Objectives. It describes what effective learning objectives look like and how to construct a student facing objective based on your classroom learning standards. This course will allow you to develop objectives that are measurable and better aligned to your assessments and learning activities, to help you streamline your planning and improve your student’s performance. Through structured activities, reflection templates, checklist, resources, and more- you can re-examine your own classroom practices and identify methods for building more targeted objectives that will allow you to better assess your students, better design your lessons, and better improve your student’s progress.

You will analyze the components of an effective learning objective and learn how to unpack a standard. You’ll be able to better analyze and use Bloom’s Taxonomy to create more balanced instruction. Then, you will build a resource targeted at effectively implementing an implementation plan you will analyze a research article to better reflect on research- based impacts in the classroom.

This course will provide you with the tools to build an effective action plan to implement effective learning objectives into your classroom, so you are successful in better teaching and assessing your students.

*This pricing includes Model Teaching’s course fee of $65 & Humboldt State University’s academic credit fee if $50.  You will only be charged $65 at registration.  To request your credits from Humboldt, you will submit you completion certificate and pay the remaining $50 at the completion of the course to receive your academic credit units.

Participants Will Be Able To:

  • Understand, communicate, and analyze the three components that make up an effective learning objective
  • Successfully “unpack” and analyze a standard to ensure we know all components of what students should be able to do within a lesson
  • Analyze how to use Bloom’s Taxonomy and cognitive learning levels to create more balanced instruction
  • Compose targeted supplemental resources to ensure action plan implementation of student documentation and data collection in the classroom
  • Analyze and defend research articles covering the main topics within the course, to reflect on the research’s impact in the classroom
  • Plan, reflect, and report on implementation progress using a Classroom Implementation Plan
