A shared learning target unpacks a "lesson-sized" amount of learning—the precise "chunk" of the particular content students are to master (
A shared learning target, on the other hand, frames the lesson from the students' point of view.
answer the following three questions from the student's point of view:
- What will I be able to do when I've finished this lesson?
- What idea, topic, or subject is important for me to learn and understand so that I can do this?
- How will I show that I can do this, and how well will I have to do it?
he single best way to share a learning target is to create a strong performance of understanding—a learning experience that embodies the learning target. When students complete the actions that are part of a strong performance of understanding, they and their teachers will know that they have reached the target.
