Learning Intentions

Learning Intentions

As teachers, we understand the importance of setting clear learning intentions for our students to encourage active learning and participation. My learning intention classroom materials provide a clear structure for your students to visualize their education goals for any given lesson while ensuring that they remain engaged. With the help of these templates, your students will be able to clearly understand what they are learning and their set objective or expected outcome from an engaging lesson. 

My templates are editable, which means you can customize them to meet your specific needs and goals. No matter what subject you are teaching, you can tailor these resources to help you lay out the objectives of a lesson for your students, so you can focus on delivering great instruction that meets your students’ needs.

Why every teacher should have learning intentions in their teaching kit

Educators understand the importance of creating a stimulating learning environment that inspires students. My range of learning intentions, classroom decor and teaching resources are designed to help you achieve just that. By using learning intentions you'll experience the following benefits:

  • Clarity of expectations: Displaying learning intentions in the classroom provides students with clear and explicit expectations for what they are expected to learn during a particular lesson or unit. This clarity helps students understand the purpose of their learning, fostering a sense of direction and focus. When students know what is expected of them, they are more likely to engage actively in the learning process.
  • Student engagement and motivation: Learning intentions act as a roadmap for students, guiding them through the educational journey. When students are aware of the specific goals and objectives of a lesson, they are more likely to stay engaged and motivated. Clear learning intentions can spark curiosity and interest, as students understand the relevance of the material and how it connects to their overall learning progression.
  • Targeted assessment and feedback: Learning intentions serve as a basis for assessment and feedback. Teachers can align assessments with the stated learning objectives, ensuring that evaluations are directly related to what was intended to be taught. Additionally, clear learning intentions provide a foundation for constructive feedback, helping students understand not only what they need to improve but also how it aligns with the established learning goals. This targeted approach supports student growth and development.
