Use Learning Targets to Keep Your Teaching On Track

In the video below you’ll hear about my learning targets board.  It is an integral component in my day-to-day teaching and planning. I take the objectives for each project and turn them into “I can” statements to display for the students. The learning targets board emphasizes vocabulary, key processes, and techniques and skills that I would like the students to learn. I use these exact objectives on rubrics and reflections. Watch the video to see how the learning targets board is influencing my students!
