Ed Talk with Dr. Bob Bravo: Lesson Objectives and Demonstrations of Learning


In this episode of Ed Talk with Bob Bravo, Dr. Bravo, Dallas ISD Chief of School Leadership, speaks with Brian Lusk, the Executive Director of the H. Grady Spruce High School feeder pattern, and John Quincy Adams Elementary Principal Nancy Bernardino. The conversation explains how Learning Objectives (LOs) aim to focus a class on what a teacher wants students to learn in a lesson, while Demonstrations of Learning (DOLs) help teachers check if students understand the lesson. The podcast also talks about how a teacher can determine if they have written an appropriate LO and DOL and explains the resources available for teachers who want further guidance on the topic of LO and DOLs.

This podcast supplements the email sent this week to Dallas ISD staff to clarify the expectations for the DOLs.
