      I like what Tom suggested. I read on a blog (oops, can't remember which one!) about using the format "We are learning X so that Y" for learning objectives. This helps you articulate to yourself what and why you are teaching something, and the students to see the link between the what and why. I also try and do some kind of pre-assessment with google forms before beginning new learning to point out connections with past learning, elicit prior knowledge and get an idea of what they want to know.
