Creating Daily Learning Objectives

Using Bloom's Taxonomy


  • Clearly defines lesson progression
  • Gives structure to the teacher-learner experience
  • Helps in self-assessment

"by the end of this lesson, students will be able to:"

Learning Objectives

Simply put, learning objectives are the answer to the following statement:

Action Verbs

Let's recall

Learning Objectives must be measurable

Effective learning objectives must be quantifiable and specific

Use action verbs

Ex. Students will be able to memorise the types of human senses

Include quantifiers

Ex. Student will be able to memorise the 5 types of human senses

Set specific criteria

Ex. Students will be able to memorise at least 3 out of 5 types of human senses

Activity: Effective Objectives

Common mistakes to avoid

  • Using vague words like “learn”, “understand” or “know”
  • Not making the objectives measurable
  • Not aligning objectives with the assessment method
  • Making them too ambitious


Create 6 sample learning objectives on the topic “The 4 Seasons of the Year” using the following sub-topics following the 6 stages of Bloom’s Taxonomy:

  • Types of seasons
  • Seasonal clothing
  • How seasons change
  • Seasons vs weather
NOTE: Make sure to use action verbs, use quantifiers and set criteria (wherever relevant)

Learning goals
Repetition/ Clarification requirement
Time Constraint
Cognitive progression

Now that you know how to write objectives, your only task remains scaling down broader objectives with consideration to:

Making Daily Objectives

How this session applied Bloom's taxonomy

Remembering: Participants will be able to correctly identify higher cognitive stages of Bloom's taxonomy in the correct order Understanding: Participants will be able to differentiate between effective and less effective learning objectives for at least 2 examples. Applying: Using Bloom's Taxonomy, participants will be able to create sample learning objectives that will include the cognitive level, action verbs, quantifiers, and criteria for a particular topic.

We did it. So can youYou got this!
