See how the guiding principles in the formation of lesson objectives are
Realize the importance of a clearly defined lesson objective
I will observe two different classes and observe the Resource Teacher
teach. I will reflect on the guide questions given below.
2. My Tools
As I observe a class, I will use the Observation Sheet for a more focused

Guiding Principles in Determining and
Formulating Learning Objectives
Teaching Behavior/swhich Prove/s
Observance of the Guiding Principle
1. Begin with the end of mind.
1. The Resource Teacher began her
lesson by starting her objective.
2. Share lesson objective with students. 2. The Resource teacher begins with a
statement and clarification of the lesson
objective. The teacher also encourages
the students to make lesson objectives
on their own.
3. Lesson objectives must be in the 2 or 3
domains – cognitive, skill and affective
3. The Resource teachernot only show or
state the definition of paraphrasing
(cognitive) but also she encourage the
students to share their feelings by
3. or cognitive and affective or skill and
choosing a line of the song that they just
4. Work on significant and relevant
4. The Resource teacher’s objectives is
kinda relevant to the students’ daily life.
She gives examples that the students
can relate with.
5. Lesson objectives must lead to the
development of critical and creative
5. The Resource teacher not just gave
them written task but she also asked
orally to the student. Through this,
students can develop critical thinking
and creative thinking.
2. After observing your Resource Teacher teaches, write down what you think
was/were her lesson objective.
After observing the class, I think her lesson objectives are:
The students will know what is paraphrasing
The students will construct their own sentences by paraphrasing
Appreciate the importance of paraphrasing
3. Ask permission from your Resource Teacher for you to copy her lesson objective
for the day’s lesson. Copy it here then compare it with your answer in # 2. Are
they the same? Different?
At the end of the lesson, students are expected to:
Restate the ideas covered by the text
Analyse the meaning of the original and paraphrased texts
4. My Analysis
1. If answer in # 3 above is different, what is your conclusion regarding written
lesson objective and actual lesson development? Are lesson objectives in
the lesson plan always followed? Do they really serve as guiding star?
My answer in number 3 compared to the lesson objectives of the teacher
has a resemblance. The lesson objectives really serve as guiding stars to the
development of learning of the learners. Sometimes lesson objectives are
not followed but students can still learn if the teacher teaches topics
related to his/her lesson objectives.
2. Why did you find it easy/difficult to write down the Resource Teacher’s
lesson objective for the day? Did she mention it in the beginning of his/her
I find thelesson objective easy toguess because of thestrategyshe is using.
She let the students to choose one line from the song and interpret it using
their own understanding, so I immediately guessed that they’re lesson is all
about paraphrasing. Even though the teacher didn’t mention the lesson
objectives at the beginning of their class, the way she discussed the topic
make me know what her lesson objectives are.
3. Did you find the lesson objective SMART? Why or why not?
Yes, her learning objectives were classified as SMART in such way that it
can be consumed in specific-time-allotment. Aside from that it can also
be measured and attained in a way that the student will know the
meaning of paraphrasing and to give samples of it.
4. Was the lesson objective in the cognitive or psychomotor or affective
domain? Or was it in the two or three domains? Support your answer.
The lesson is in the COGNITVE as well as AFFECTIVE domain because its not
only encouraging the students to think, to analyze or to restate the idea
being presented but also students are encouraged to relate some of the
lines in the song to their lives.
5. My Reflections
Any lessons learned or insights gained from your observation focused on
lesson objectives? Write them down here. Are lesson objectives truly the
guiding star in the development of a lesson? Or are lesson objectives
sometimes forgotten as the lesson develops?
I learned that lesson objectives must be in the 2 or 3 domains-
knowledge; the cognitive, affective and psychomotor.
Lesson objectives must be connected to the student’s life
I also learned that we can also share the lesson objectives with the
The lesson objectives must be attained at the end of the lesson in
order to proceed to another topic.
Teachers must begin the lesson with a clearly defined lesson
Lesson objectives are guide for us to determine/evaluate if our
teachingis effective, if theobjectives are not attained,thenthere’s
something wrong with your teaching.
