Often times teachers are told to place objectives in their room, but the students don't interact with them. This template is aimed at giving student ownership of goals, objectives and agendas with a signature spot. Also included is a warm-up and exit ticket section on the second page, as well as a self-reflection section.
Marzano talks about the importance of setting goals and communicating them to students in his research. He says "Establishing and communicating learning goals are the starting place. After all, for learning to be effective, clear targets in terms of information and skill must be
established. But establishing and communicating learning goals alone do not suffice
to enhance student learning. Rather, once goals have been set it is natural and necessary to track progress. This assessment does not occur at the end of a unit only but
throughout the unit...This means that the average score in classes where
goal setting was effectively employed would be 21 percentile points higher than
the average score in classes where goal setting was not employed."(p.9
