To target is to reach possibilities that hide from fuzzy lessons!
No wonder students' brains benefit from clear targets in class.

Why should secondary students guess what’s in your head?
No guessing - when you can offer them refreshingly clear targets to launch curiosity for your lesson?
This 20 page guide offers clear lesson targets
that enable students to actively engage multiple intelligences in your class.
You’ve likely noticed that learners do consistently better when they know the lesson targets
. But have you noticed how they feel frustrated when they have to guess the purpose or objective of your lessons?
Similarly it's no surprise that faculty who know where they’re headed tend to get there faster.
You could say it's simply because they have somewhere tangible to go.
To target well is to start with basic questions, such as -
What specific tasks do you expect from your students to demonstrate skills or concepts learned?
Will they know what that is from the start of class? And will it be clear if they reached your targets when the lesson ends?
Enjoy quality goals or objectives that lead to meaningful learning tasks for unit themes in your discipline.
Introduce the theme light for instance, and a question may emerge such as, “How does light impact humanity?”
List performance objectives visibly as class begin – and students will use these targets as advanced organizers.
To ensure that all students actively engage in your topic, start each lesson target (or objective) with the preface – “The Learner Will …” (or TLW)
Here are two examples that fit one lesson question
• TLW compare and contrast light and darkness in the novel Light a Single Candle.
• TLW illustrate the position of images, rays, lines, and angles in mirrors.
Enjoy creating new advanced organizers in the following brain based pages
– and expect higher motivation and achievement for your students. Please do let me know if I can support your targets further. firstname.lastname@example.org

will benefit your learners and leaders as they do mine at middle, secondary, university levels and beyond.
