I currently post my learning targets, though I call them objectives and usually try to state them prior to starting the day's lesson. I really like the idea of calling them learning targets. It really seems more student friendly. With only about 30 days left of the school year, I will start using the phrase learning targets next year and probably go buy a target from Meijer.
I always try to take a very standards based approach to my teaching and assessment. This was my first year in the district, so I have spent a great deal of time learning the curriculum, next year I plan to do more standards based assessments since I will be more familiar with the curriculum. It is something I am passionate about, so the roadblocks seems small.
