Writing Good Lesson Objectives

The lesson objective is an important aspect of creating an effective lesson plan. Without an appropriately written objective, you will not have positive results from your teaching. Given this, how do you write a good lesson objective?

Use measurable objectives instead of vague ones. For example, having students “understand” or “learn about” does not allow for assessment but having students “state” or “list” provides a measurable objective.

When writing your lesson plans, start with the assessment. Then move onto writing the objective. Once you know what you want your students to be able to do at the end of the lesson, you will be able to write an effective assessment.
