•Setting goals is a great way for students to practice self reflection and maintain a positive growth mindset. This project allows students to set their own goal and make an action plan to achieve their goal in 30 days.
•After 30 days there is a follow up activity for students to assess whether or not they successfully achieved their goal.
•The great part about this project is that you can do it again and again! Your students can challenge themselves and set goals throughout the year.
•Lessons should always be personally meaningful to our students. This activity allows students to set goals that are meaningful for them. The possibilities are endless!
