This packet includes more detail than is commonly found in "getting to know you" questionnaires, so it can also be used to collect an early writing sample from students. Following the background questions, a step-by-step guide takes students through the process of creating realistic, achievable goals. Students are also asked to list what steps they will take to accomplish their objective. It's suggested that students list goals in different areas of the lives - academics, character development, health and fitness, etc. A "goals ticket" is included that can be used at the teacher's discretion to recognize a student's progress toward one of the goals.
