Where am I going?

  • Share the learning goal/s (target/s, intention/s, aims/s) with students before teaching the lesson, giving the assignment doing the activity, etc.

  • Use language that students understand, and check to make sure they understand.

  • Ask students what they think constitutes quality in a product or performance learning goal.

  • Show students how their thoughts match with the scoring guide or rubric you will use to define quality.

  • Provide students with scoring guides that are written so they can understand them.

  • Develop scoring criteria with students.
