To teach … a series of sentences or statements that clearly state what is to be accomplished are specified. The sentences or statements include the terms – objectives, criteria, learning criteria or specifications – are used interchangeably and mean the same thing. The outcome for all of these words is pupil achievement and performance.
Each sentence or statement must begin with a verb that states the action to be taken to show accomplishment. The most important word to use in an assignment is a verb – because verbs show if accomplishment has taken place or not.
Verbs are “action words” or “thinking words”.
Dr. Benjamin Bloom and a group of psychologists developed Bloom’s Taxonomy of Cognitive Processes.
