GREAT goal setting activity for ELA class. I use it for the start of school year, after each quarter, or after the return of winter break.
List of goals is separated into four domains (speaking & listening, writing, reading, and language.) There are 3 - 6 goals under each domain. Students choose TWO. Each goal correlates to a specific ELA Common Core Standard, but is put into student friendly terms.
On the next worksheet, students follow prompts on how to turn their academic CCSS goal into an attainable goal by using the SMART strategy. (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time bound)
