Learning intentions are the key to any lesson
They focus on the importance of making explicit to students what they are going to learn. The learning intention (or objective) for a lesson or series of lessons is a statement which describes clearly what the teacher wants the students to
  • know
  • understand; and
  • be able to do
as a result of the learning and teaching activities

The Assessment for Learning website has been developed by Curriculum Corporation

Toni Glasson's Book 'Improving students Achievement' provides great support for understanding and writing Learning Intentions. Sample pages here:
