Transcript of ComS 222 "Effective Lecturing"

Lecture does = Content + Style
Goal-setting is essential, but ...
Three common problems in goal-setting
No goals conceived
Belief that goals = description of activity
Goals focus on instructor not students
Setting goals helps to...
Sort out what needs to be talked about and how
Give you more positive control over content
Crystalize your insights (gifts)
Syntax of goal statement is important!
Use infinitive verb form to name outcome
Describe STUDENTS' state of being at END of lesson

It IS about "chunking" content and shaping the chunks to match student attention spans.

To value well-articulated learning goals for lecture
To master the syntax of learning goals
To use goals as a tool for organizing content

(Turn on your speakers; you'll hear some thinking prompts and explanations later.)
