**KUDOs: Lesson Plan Worksheet**

**Lesson Plan Worksheet #1**

**KUDOs**

Writing KUDOs helps us translate standards into language students and parents can understand. KUDOs are a way to write learning goals for each standard that specify the following:

- What do I want my students to
**K**now?- What facts, vocabulary, dates, rules, people, places do you want students to know at the end of this lesson?
*Knows*are usually a list of things we want students to recall or memorize.*Knows*can easily be translated into lower level learning targets/lesson objectives.

- What do I want my students to
**U**nderstand?- What concepts, principles, and generalizations do you want your students to understand?
*Understandings*are generally written as sentences and describe the concept or principle we want students to understand.*Understandings*are the “big ideas” of the unit or lesson and guide what activities we choose for students to engage in during our lesson as well as our lesson targets.

- What do I want my students to be able to
**Do**?- What will my students be able to do independently by the end of the lesson?
- Do’s are skills and processes.
- Do’s are written as statements beginning with a verb usually from Bloom’s Taxonomy or Webb’s Depth of Knowledge.
- Do’s can easily be translated into learning targets/ lesson objectives.
