JEFCOED Lesson Preparation: Developing Content and
Language Objectives Content Objective: Identify content objectives for English Learners that are aligned to ACOS.

Language Objective: Discuss advantages for writing both language and content objectives for a lesson and sharing the objectives with students.

Key vocabulary: Content objective, Language Objective Objectives As teachers, we know the importance of writing and teaching content objectives in our lessons. As you know, it is the first requirement of a successful lesson plan.
A content objective:
Supports state content standards and learning outcomes
Identifies what a student should know and be able to do at the end of a lesson
include synonyms for instructional terms to aid clarification
Is written in student friendly language
Is specific and limited to only one or two per lesson
Contains action verbs that are measurable

Content Objectives:
Clearly Defined, Displayed and Reviewed with Students Discuss the following content objectives.

The student will learn about and understand our solar system and planetary system.

The student state (tell) that the sun, earth and moon are part of our solar system. Content Objective Examples However, for many of us, sharing the objectives orally and in writing with students is often overlooked.
Turn and Talk to your table and discuss how you share content objectives with your students. In order to meet the needs of all students, teachers must incorporate language objectives into their lesson plans. These support students’ language development while meeting content objectives.
A Language Objective:
Contains an action verb that promotes student academic language growth (speaking, listening, reading, writing)
Clearly supports the content objective
Scaffolds or supports the students in obtaining the content After you have written the state standard as an appropriate content objective, you will need to plan the lesson and determine a language objective.

Think about how language will be used in a lesson:
In your speech
In class discussion
In reading assignments
In lesson activities How to Develop a Language Objective? 1. Key Vocabulary – What words are needed to discuss, read or write about the topic of the lesson? Keep in mind these include the academic vocabulary of the lesson, as well as, other words such as, comparatives (both, are similar, in comparison), conjunctions (but, however, although), transition phrases (first, next, during the second phase), and instructional tasks (underline, match, define).
Example: SWBAT to define the terms metaphor and simile orally or in writing. Six Categories for Developing Language
Objectives 2. Language Functions – The way students use language in the lesson. Students may be asked to describe, compare, or summarize.
Example – SWBAT to formulate questions and generate hypothesis before conducting an experiment using question and hypothesis starters provided by the teacher. 3. Language Skills – Reading, writing, listening and speaking skills students need in order to learn.
Example – SWBAT listen to an audio recording and identify the speaker’s point of view regarding a conflict. 3. Language Skills – Reading, writing, listening and speaking skills students need in order to learn.
Example – SWBAT listen to an audio recording and identify the speaker’s point of view regarding a conflict. 4. Grammar or Language Structures – Can be taught when they are prevalent in the written or spoken discourse of the class. These may include past or future tense verbs, pronoun usage, prefixes, suffixes, and root words.
Example – SWB AT use adverbs of time in their lab report to describe observations. 5. Lesson tasks – What language is embedded in a lesson assignment.
SWBAT read and summarize a text passage with peers and then teach the main information to another student
In this example the teacher would make sure the student can read for the main ideas, write a summary, and share information orally. If not, the teacher may teach one of these three language goals. 6. Language Learning Strategies – includes corrective strategies (reread confusing text), self monitoring strategies (make and confirm predictions), pre reading strategies ( picture walk, titles, headings), language practice strategies (repeat or rehearse phrases, visualize), use of cognates.
Example – SWBAT confirm their responses to text questions with a peer.
SWBAT to represent data graphically using a teacher created model. Verbs for Language Objectives:
