I hold tremendous value on "I can" statements as instructional goals among the teacher and their students, creating shared ownership of the learning.
These verbs are associated with the appropriate level of RBT, beginning with Lower Order Thinking Skills and progressing towards Higher Order thinking skills:
Remember: recognize, recall
Understand: interpret, classify, explain, infer, exemplify, summarize, compare
Apply: execute, implement
Analyze: differentiate, attribute, organize
Evaluate: check, critique
Create: plan, generate, produce, design
ex. I can summarize a point of view as how the author feels about a topic.
ex. I can differentiate the characteristic of real, rational, irrational, and complex numbers.
Thanks for viewing,
