Thanks to @JustinAion, I got thinking…
It depends… on my class and the students and the activity…to determine if I actually post it.
However, when I do, I refer to it at the beginning, throughout the task – to remind students of the end goal, and again as a wrap up – whether reflection, exit ticket of discussion/summary to end class. And I like to refer to it the following day as we begin the next lesson, just as a quick review.
I, personally, would prefer to have an overarching Essential Question for each lesson to use rather than a specifically stated target. However, I
sometimes struggle a lot with Writing EQs, would love a colleague to collaborate on these.
Here’s a section of the unit organizers I’ve used this past year (thanks @lisabej_manitou).
I give them to students toward beginning of unit, we complete the words worth knowing for vocabulary (thanks @mathequalslove). Then read through actual targets. When quizzes are given back or practice problems checked, students have a place to reflect/record thwir level of learning as well. Because students have this in their INBs, I can quickly refer to them if not posted on the board on any given day.
