I already failed my 2020 New Year's Resolutions. How about you?
But we can set goals at any time. Here's a FREE no-prep goal setting worksheet for your students that will walk them through the brainstorming process. You can also modify the Word docs for your specific needs.
Study skills are more than just how to study. It's about HOW to set goals and figuring out the "WHY" behind why we need to achieve this goal. It's about the BIG PICTURE.
I may know HOW to study, but if I'm not motivated, or I'm just told I have to study, it may not mean anything. Achieving goals (like studying for a hard test) takes EFFORT so you need a solid "WHY" to pull you through.
Help students set New Year’s Resolutions for 2020, study goals, or any sort of Personal Resolutions (goals), any time of the year using this FREE writing assignment.
BONUS ADD-ON (Jan 11, 2020):
- We added a generic, works-any-time-of-the-year Personal Resolutions (goal setting) version of our 2020 New Year's Resolution handout.
- We don’t have to wait until the New Year to set goals and improve. This FREE writing assignment helps students recognize that they can choose to get better starting today!
- This Personal Resolutions handout is the exact same activity as our New Year's 2020 Resolutions handout with a few minor changes.
- The handouts are identical on purpose. The point is, we can set goals anytime in the year. At the start of the school year or semester. After you get back a major assignment or report card. And yes, after New Year’s Eve!
- We've helped teachers around the world with over 8,809 downloads!
- But, we really have no idea what subjects / grades you teach... or what would help you build a growth mindset with your students.
- So, we're having a contest!

There are two versions in the zipped file:
- NO PREP REQUIRED: Just print the PDF handouts and go!
- Editable version: Modify the Word .DOCx handouts to fit your specific classroom needs.
This writing activity will help your students:
- Brainstorm great moments and tough obstacles in the past
- Brainstorm things they want to do more of (and less of) starting today
- Brainstorm supporting ideas:
- Describe what they want to improve,
- Identify what they can do to improve the situation / why these actions will work,
- Reflect on how this goal will help make life better and what it will feel like if they achieve this goal.
- Write a paragraph about their Personal Resolution, Study Goals, (or New Year’s resolution) with specific supporting ideas.
A rubric is provided with four-level descriptors to assess
- organization, and
- writing conventions (capitalization, grammar usage, punctuation, and spelling).
Our goal at Educircles.org is to make the world a better place. We do this by helping people achieve their goals, stand up for themselves and for others. Oh, and we also design digital resources for teachers. READ MORE
