The impact of shifting standards and objectives into student-facing learning targets cannot be overstated.  The role of student as navigator of their own learning journey is operationalized even as they monitor their progress.  Teaching become partners with their students and find that engagement increases exponentially. Of importance is that the learning targets are "brain-friendly" creating an invitational approach to assignments and lesson planning.  Students take responsibility for monitoring their work and make use of feedback to improve their performance.  This session will provide the nuts and bolts of how to make this shift with ease.   Dr. Jacobs will provide participants with tools, examples and strategies.  Learning targets is a practical direct method to get a big shift in today's classrooms toward genuine personalization.
