Lesson Idea: Learning Objectives

Jessica Till asks a good question on Twitter:

and Graham's response stood out to me:

Turning this around (also mentioned by Will Dunn later in the thread), what would happen if we taught a lesson or went through an activity without positing the objective and then have students state the learning as an exit ticket or closing discussion. What insight could we glean?

Intentions are important, but implementation is harder.

H/T to Darren Burris and Dan Meyer for showing up in my timeline.
