What are Learning Targets?
Statements of intended
learning based on the standards. Learning targets are in kid friendly language and are specific
to the lesson for the day and directly
connected to assessment.
What are the Common Core State Standards?
Provided by the state and derived from the National Standards. Academic benchmarks based on what students are expected to know
and be able to do
at the end of any given time.
Icahn Charter School 1 teachers participated in a school-wide initiative introducing Learning Targets as an instructional tool to enhance student learning and achievement. Unlike instructional objectives, derived from content standards, written in teacher language, and used to guide teaching during a lesson, learning targets frame a lesson from the student point of view. A learning target helps students grasp the lesson's purpose--why it is crucial to learn this information and exposes students to the Common Core State Standards. Learning Targets are written in a student friendly way and posted as an “I Can..” statement. Each month, we will expand on our Learning Targets implementation.
