Help your students stay focused on their academic goals! (This will work best for classrooms/districts that use an online grading system that the students can access.)
I currently use this with my 6th grade students. It really does help motivate most of them, and get them thinking specifically about what they can do to improve their grades.
How to use this Grade Tracking Sheet:
1. Every quarter, have students make goals for the upcoming quarter.
2. Have students write their grades under "Expected Grades".
3. Students access their grades through the online gradebook and record the information.
4. Parents initial that they have seen the current grades and what the student's plan is for maintaining or improving the grades.
