Your lesson’s Big Picture

Sharing clear Aims and Objectives (A&O) is the essential part of each lesson. “Clarity is defined as entering the lesson with a sharp awareness of what is to be learned”. On the top of that, it is also presenting success criteria and a range of activities to be used. It is a great moment to inspire, engage and motivate your learners, making them want to explore a topic (Lightbody, 2012: 213).
Many teachers write lessons’ A&O down on the board or present them in a PowerPoint (.ppt) slide, but these methods are impossible when you teach a VI learner.

You may want to:
a) read the A&O to the learner
b) have cards with A&O typed in Braille
c) insert a list of A&O typed in Braille into a picture frame. This does its job, especially when you do a re-cap, having all of the A&O in one place. An additional advantage is that a student can take this home later.
