AMT Learning Goals and Teaching Roles
The purpose of focussing on the AMT is to insure that all three types of goals (acquisition, meaning, and transfer) are addressed in the learning plan.
Learning Plan and Learning Events should be derived from the goals of Stage 1 and the assessments of Stage 2. Ensuring alignment will ensure the effectiveness of the activities.
This goal seeks to help learners acquire factual information and basic skills.
In this role, the primary role of teachers is to inform the learners through explicit instruction in targeted knowledge and skills; differentiating as needed.
