As a Science teacher I value research driven data! Research, and first hand experience from classroom teachers, suggests that encouraging students to set their own goals and reflect on learning can assist in academic achievement and student engagement. This Atomic Reflections & Goals Activity can aid in making this experience memorable for ALL students. Each Student is given an atom either at the end or beginning of the calendar year. Students read per made questions and statements that allow them to think about the following:
~ Reflect on past learning (how they learn best, what their favorite topic was to learn thus far, and what are they most proud of). This helps the teacher to see what they should do more of!
~ Set goals for the future (a goal for 2018, their action plan for achieving this goal, and what they will do if they get off track.
~ Students will then take even more ownership of their atom by decorating it how they like & cut out.
~ I then displayed them to help hold them accountable and remind them of what they want to achieve this year!!!
