            McK : Chapter 2 (Count down), Chapter 12 (Motivating)

            For your consideration, Number 3

            Handouts and web pages on objectives and Bloom’s Taxonomy. 
These are multiple documents that cover the same taxonomy, but each gives a slightly different perspective.




            Do a web search on Bloom’s taxonomy and see what other useful documents
you can find. 


Write a set of course objectives for your selected course. An objective is an observable behavior that you would like the students to be able to do by the end of the course.  List the objectives in order of importance and justify the ordering.  Then select one unit of your course (a piece that would take 2-3 weeks to cover) and prepare a set of objectives for that unit.  Again, prioritize the objectives and justify your ordering.

Write a checklist of things that should be included in a course syllabus.  Don't write the syllabus yet; that will come later.
