Lesson planning is an important skill. There are many different ways to write a lesson plan but they all will include some key components. This assignment will look at writing measurable student objectives, applying appropriate national and state content standards to child-centered activities, identifying authentic assessments, and comparing Christ-like behaviors to professional teacher standards.
Address each one of the topics below. Copy and paste them into a new document.
1. Outcomes, objectives, must be specific and measurable. You, as the instructor, must be able to observe the students meeting the objective. Below are examples of poorly written objectives. Rewrite each objective so it is specific and measurable. Refer to Verbs to Use In Writing Objectives, if you need some verb suggestions.
Students will learn how to dribble a soccer ball.
Students will know all the rules of softball.
Students will appreciate their classmates.
Students will remember the three juggling patterns.
Students will consider the safety rules.
