Designing Communication Objectives

Supporting Language Acquisition and Global Competencies


OUSD Mission Statement

“The Orange Unified School District, being committed to planning for continual improvement, will offer a learning environment of excellence, with high expectations, to provide each student with the opportunity to be able to compete in the global economy.”


Communication Objectives Defined

A communication objective specifies how students will communicate their understanding of the content of a lesson.

A communication objective includes:

  • A communication task: How students will communicate their learning(describe, explain, etc.)

  • The grammar/usage and/or academic vocabulary appropriate to fulfilling the communication task.

    Why is writing communication objectives important?

    To build a foundation for college and career readiness students must have ample opportunities to take part in a variety of rich, structured conversations.   Common Core, ELA standards pg. 22


Designing Communication Objectives Graphic Organizer


Designing Communication Objectives

  • Identify a content standard for the lesson.

  • Write a content objective based on the standard.

  • Analyze the content objective to determine which communication task, grammar/usage and/or academic vocabulary students will need in order to communicate their understanding of the lesson content in a clear, coherent way.

  • Create a communication objective that includes the communication task, grammar/usage, and/or the academic vocabulary.


Communication Objective Examples:

Students will describe the length of an object using numbers and academic vocabulary.

Usingsequencing words and past tense verbs, students will summarizea story.

“The _________ I have identified in the _________ communication objective is _________. “

taskvocabularygrammar


Communication Objective Sample Frames:

Usingsequencing words and past tense verbs, students will summarizea story.

Frames:

Students will communicate by using (academic vocabulary)/(grammar/usage)in order to (task).

Students will (task) by(grammar/usage) using (academic vocabulary).

Communicating in (grammar/usage),students will (task) using (academic vocabulary).


2nd Grade Math Example

Content Standard: Common Core Math Standards

Measurement & Data: 2.MD.1 Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks and measuring tapes.

Content Objective: Students will measure the length of an object.


2nd Grade Math Example

Content Objective: Students will measure the length of an object.

Communication Objective (with content) : Students will describethe length of different classroom objects using numbers and academic vocabulary.

Communication Objective (without content) : Students will describethe length of an object using numbers and academic vocabulary.

“The style of communication objective I prefer is _________ .”

“My rationale for my preference is _________ .”

3rd Grade ELA Example

Content Standard: Common Core ELA Standards

Key Ideas and Details: RL.3.2. Recount stories, including fables, folktales, and myths from diverse cultures; determine the central message, lesson, or moral and explain how it is conveyed through key details in the text.

Content Objective: Students will recount Lon Po Po using key details from the text.

“A communication task that would be appropriate for this content is _________.”

“My justification for my thinking is _________.”

3rd Grade ELA Example

Content Objective: Students will recount Lon Po Po using key details from the text.

Communication Objective (with content): Using sequencing words and past tense verbs, students will summarizeLon Po Po.

Or

Communication Objective (without content): Using sequencing words and past tense verbs, students will summarizea story.

Designing Communication Objectives:

  • Identify a content standard for the lesson.

  • Write a content objective based on the standard.

  • Analyze the content objective to determine which communication task, grammar/usage and/or academic vocabulary students will need in order to communicate their understanding of the lesson content in a clear, coherent way.

  • Create a communication objective that includes the communication task, grammar/usage, and/or the academic vocabulary.


Creating Communication Objectives

2nd Grade Standard: RI.2.2. Identify the main topic of a multi-paragraph text as well as the focus of specific paragraphs within the text.

Content Objective: Students will identify the main topic of a multi-paragraph text.

3rd Grade Standard: RL.3.3. Describe characters in a story (e.g., their traits, motivations, or feelings) and explain how their actions contribute to the sequence of events.

Content Objective: Students will describe how a character’s actions contribute to the sequence of events.

3rdGrade Standard: 3.G.2. Partition shapes into equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole.

Content Objective: Students will divide a circle into equal areas each expressed as a unit fraction of the whole.

  • Choose one of the content objectives above and write a communication objective.


Communication Objectives Tuning Protocol

  • Individuals or partners present Communication Objectives.

  • Audience asks “Clarifying Questions.”

  • Audience provides “Warm Feedback.”

    • During this time, the person presenting does not interact with the person giving feedback, they simply listen.

  • Audience provides “Cool Feedback.”

    • During this time, the person presenting does not interact with the person giving feedback, they simply listen.

  • Audience suggests “Next Steps.”

  • Individual or partners reflect on feedback.

  • Repeat process until all individuals or partners have shared.


Tuning Protocol Response Frames

Clarifying

“A clarifying question I have is _________.”

“I am not clear about _________.”

Warm

“I liked the way _________.”

“One aspect I liked _________.”

Cool

“You might consider_________.”

“Have you thought about _________.

“ I am wondering if _________.”
