Teacher Name, Grade Level and Course:


Element 1, Learning Goal
LEARNING OBJECTIVE
What big ideas/skills do you want
students to be able to remember
and do after they leave your class?
What are your essential
questions? What do they need to
be able to do to succeed in the
next grade level? (Think ideas,
skills, and concepts, not content
units. For example,
understanding how history repeats
itself rather than The Civil War.)

Students will be able to use their knowledge of various phrases


to write an interesting variety of sentences, choosing the
construction that works best for their audience and purpose.

BIG IDEA

will make them appear more scholarly and help them use writing
skills to accomplish what they desire, be it getting a job or
earning a scholarship.
