The beginning of the school year is the perfect time for students to change their dreams into reality by setting goals and then working hard to try to achieve them.
"Goal Setting" is an abbreviated version of a PowerPoint presentation that can help you to guide your students as they set academic and personal goals and then work to achieve them over the course of two months. This presentation can also be printed as a set of handouts for students to use.
After your students have written their goals, discuss their progress at least once a week. If students are facing similar obstacles, you may decide to meet with them in small groups to discuss different ways they may overcome them. At the end of this two month project, have the students help to decide how to celebrate their achievement.
