Objectives of Psychomotor GoalsWhat is the difference between Goals and Objectives?
Goals are broad, generalized statements that discuss what is to be learned. Goals serve as a target to be achieved, or or measured against.
Objectives are observable in behaviors that can be measured.
For a more comprehensive explanation, refer to
This domain is characterized by
levels of behaviors from observation to mastery of a physical skill.
Behavioral Objectives - Psychomotor Domain Leslie Wilson's Curriculum Pages These plans have been generously donated by students from my sections of ED381 and are meant to be used as planning prototypes for my undergraduate and graduate students, or by other interested browsers. If you use ideas presented in the plans, please give appropriate credit to the original writer. Each plan falls into one of the eight categories:
Combination Model - Plans using more than one of the above.
Graffiti Model - Graffiti is a cooperative learning structure in which students are asked to give written responses to questions posed by the teacher. The graffiti model is an excellent way to check for understanding, to evaluate instruction, or to do an informal pre-assessment. See Details
Hunter Model - A highly structured format for plans devised using the classic, repetitive lesson model developed by the late Madeline Hunter.
Jigsaw Model - Originally, the jigsaw concept was developed in the 1960's to facilitate racial integration as students were required to work collaboratively on projects. As an educational model it falls into the Social Family of methods. There are several variations of this model - more samples will be forthcoming. Link - to the 'Official" Jigsaw Site.
Learning Styles Model - These plans are devised and written reflecting concepts developed by Kathleen Butler. Butler's work is based on learning style categorizations developed by Anthony Gregorc - concrete sequential, abstract sequential, concrete random, and abstract random personality and learning styles.
Multiple Intelligences - MI plans utilize, or are based on, those intelligences described in the work of Howard Gardner.
Problem Solving Model - These plans reflect general rules for developing skills used in solving problems. In this process the teacher develops a problem; carefully accesses skills needed to solve the problem; and creates conditions and/or parameters that act as guidelines for products or solutions. These same conditions and parameters also serve as evaluation and assessment criteria.
