      Begin by stating your objectives clearly. Write them on the board and if technology is being used include them in the technology. Discuss each one thoroughly with the students using different approaches. Analyze each and summarize each as well. Show students what achieving each objective means to personal learning. Allow time for students to write each objective in their note indicating what each will learn from the objectives. This gives rise to easy self assessment on the part of the students.

      When all of this is achieved the teacher should integrate each objective one at a time in the lesson. After the integration process analyze and summarize the section of the lesson and ask for students feedback. Give examples or cite occasions where teach objective applies. Let the students do the same. When you are finished integrating each objective in the lesson move on to help the students see how the lesson's objectives are tied to the contents of the previous lesson and the follow up lesson. Students will begin to position objectives and see connection not only in the lesson but in the entire unit of work. Students reflection and critical thinking skills will be fueled.

        I agree with Jacqueline. I also like to discuss a wordy and/or complicated objective in a plain, practical sense. Students are reassured when you let them know that they will actually use this new skill/knowledge at some point throughout their life ;)
