Introducing (drum roll, please) The Differentiator! While not quite a superhero, this web site is definitely an invaluable lesson planning tool.
Begin by choosing the appropriate thinking skill (yes, those are Bloom's verbs you see), and it will be added to your objective.
Move on to the aqua tab to choose the type of content you want for the lesson. The green tab allows you to choose the resource you expect your students to use, and the melon-colored tab will offer a wide array of finished product choices. Next, use the Groups tab to select how students will work to complete the assignment. Once all of those choices have been made, simply fill in the subject matter where you see (click to enter content), and you have a detailed objective that you can copy and paste into your lesson plans, or modify as needed.
The Differentiator really is a pretty handy, dandy tool, and one certainly worth bookmarking for easy access. Give it a try. It may not be a superhero, but it may make you feel like one.
