This resource is for students to create their own academic goal for a set amount of time in a specific class. It is recommended for upper elementary or middle school classrooms. It is also recommended to be used quarterly or semesterly.
This worksheet is intended to cause students to reflect on their work ethic and what may be holding them back from giving their best effort in a particular class. Students must reflect on their work ethic, what grade they received last (quarter, semester, etc.), and what goal they think would be best to strive for next time.
There is space for students to write which class they are writing the goal for so that any subject area can use it!
I used this resource every quarter and conferenced with each student about their goals every week. I used a chart in the classroom where students filled out if they met their goals or not. At the end of the quarter, students who met their goals all but 1-2 weeks received a reward in the form of a coupon (extra recess, lunch with the teacher, snack pass, pick your seat pass, etc.)
