Are you often staring at your board wondering how to word your Learning Target and Success Criteria for your writing lesson? That was me! Save yourself some time with this 80+ page download of Common Core Learning Targets AND corresponding Success Criteria for your middle school ELA classroom. These Learning Targets are appropriate for middle grades, specifically 6-8, but could easily be adapted for other grade levels. These Learning Targets and Success Criteria cover ALL Common Core Writing Anchor Standards.
What are Learning Targets and Success Criteria?
Learning Targets (also called Learning Intentions) and Success Criteria are quickly replacing the "Objectives" used to indicate learning goals to students. Here's their purpose:
Learning Target: What will we learn?
Rationale: Why should we learn it?
Success Criteria: How will I know I am successful?
Learning Targets are written in Common-Core aligned, yet student-friendly language and include the rationale statement, while the Success Criteria are written using "I can..." statements.
This download includes printable PDFs of each Learning Target with Success Criteria, but I have also included a document with all Learning Targets/Success Criteria in one easy location. This product is also EDITABLE. The download includes a link to an EDITABLE Google Slides presentation for classroom display and an EDITABLE Google Doc.
