Review

In Designing and Teaching Learning Goals and Objectives, Robert Marzano brilliantly translates goal-setting research into thought-provoking and doable professional practice. In chapter two, he makes important distinctions between goals and assignments and shows readers how to translate general standards statements into specific learning goals. As a result, educators can (1) become much more precise about what they want their students to know and be able to do and (2) be better able to effectively communicate these specific learning goals to their students.

In chapter three, Dr. Marzano provides both the rationale and process for developing student learning goals at four different levels of difficulty the very essence of differentiation to assist educators in better meeting the diverse learning needs of all their students: By designing goals at different difficulty levels, the teacher can ensure that each student is challenged without being overwhelmed. Educators need to know before planning instruction the level of thinking difficulty a particular learning goal represents so they can design a matching set of aligned instruction, learning tasks, and assessments that will provide credible evidence as to whether students have achieved the targeted goal and at what degree of proficiency. Such alignment will enable teachers to more accurately diagnose specific student learning needs and modify their instruction accordingly. --Larry Ainsworth, author of Power Standards and Unwrapping the Standards, coauthor of Common Formative Assessments, Five Easy Steps to a Balanced Math Program, and Student-Generated Rubrics

With a penetrating research perspective, Marzano and his team provide classroom teachers and school administrators with a fresh look at a timeless problem: How do we create meaningful goals and objectives that actually make a difference for our learners? To the prospective reader, open this book and find specific methods to enliven your curriculum, focus your instructional approach, and to actively engage your learners. I believe Designing and Teaching Learning Goals and Objectives: Classroom Strategies That Work is destined to become an education classic. --Dr. Heidi Hayes Jacobs, executive director of the Curriculum Mapping Institute

If, as a teacher, you are looking for a way to help your kids increase their achievement in your subject area, I recommend this book. The premise, like so many successful ideas, is elegant and obvious: if kids are told what they are to learn, as well as why it is necessary or important for them to learn it, and you give them a way to both measure and monitor their progress toward their learning goals, they are almost certain to be more successful than if you don't!
This book gives the background, as well as the process, for doing all of the above. Useful insights abound (frequency of assessment being one).
Think of it this way: most of us go to a store (school, in this analogy) aiming to satisfy a lack; many of us take lists to keep from impulse buys and to make sure we don't miss something. If kids are shown that lack, provided with instruction, given a list to compare to their acquistions, as well as a way to rate the quality of their acquisitions, they are much more likely to end up with a positive outcome. Designing and Teaching Learning Goals and Objectives: Classroom Strategies That Work lays out how to do that.

Our district is adopting the Marzano evaluation model. We received training ... but this book is an excellent resource for utilizing the Marzano scales system. The Art and Science of Teaching, provides a simple explanation, but this book goes into detail about how to write various types of goals and corresponding scales, provides a taxonomy for developing the scales, and helps you understand how to translate scale scores to grades. If you get this one, get the Formative Assessment & Standards-based Grading book too -- they go hand in hand.

The book is most appropriate for teaching undergraduates, somewhat for teaching students of the professions, that is, students of medicine and law.

My school district has begun to use Marzano for teacher evals and setting up learning goals and objectives that follow the evaluation format is paramount. This book is a must have for any educator who is using Marzano, as are all his books. Marzano gives clear and concise instructions and ideas for writing the student goals.

Loved it. Very informative, but you do need to get and read his 2nd book, "Formative Assessments and Standards-Based Grading" to really understand what he discusses in this book.
