Nice list of verbs for writing educational objectives – good for teachers and teachers-in-training

I like these list not because they make for better objectives. Good objectives will shine through poor language in general. However, these are great words to better explain what you mean. This is particularly important for non-native speakers as they struggle to fully express their thoughts in English.

I further like the categorization, because this is a problem I run into all the time. Getting students to think about what success in an objective should mean. In other words, what should they be able to do, feel, know, …. after this instruction. It’s tough to get people to pin this down.
