    Learning Objectives May Interfere with Authentic Learning

    Mike Fishback offers three reasons why we should question the wisdom behind writing the lesson's objective on the board.

    1. Communicating objectives to students sends a strong message about who is driving the learning.
    2. Communicating objectives to students gives away the ending before the uncovering even begins.
    3. Communicating objectives to students discourages students and teachers from pursuing potentially constructive lines of inquiry that appear tangential to the objectives.
