The Power of Clear Learning Targets
DESCRIPTION
Hear as teachers and leaders at Nordonia High School share how a group of students challenged their entire district and community to use clear learning targets.
  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.11-12.7: Analyze multiple interpretations of a story, drama, or poem (ex. recorded or live production of a play or recorded novel or poetry), evaluating how each version interprets the source text. (Include at least one play by Shakespeare and one play by an American dramatist.)
  • R.CCR.7: Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse formats and media, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words.

  • What would your students say about their understanding of the learning targets?
CONFIRM YOUR COMMITMENT
