Ready to diagnose, treat, and cure the academic and behavioral “diseases” your students show at school? Use this set of activities to complete individualized, practical goal-setting in disguise!

Instead of getting frustrated with student excuses and choices, “cure” them with a humorous approach! Though this was made with middle school in mind, I know many high schoolers who also suffer from the following ailments:

>>>>Procrastinitis, Silence Infections, The “Whatever” Virus, High Grades Fever, The Common Over-commitment, An Upset Binder, Low Test Pressure, High Test Pressure, Excessive Talking Syndrome, and a Sprained Memory!

(Psst… Check out the PREVIEW for even more information about these diseases!)

Use this mini-unit to…
• Be proactive at the beginning of a school year (or semester)
• Treat the issues that come up during the year
• Practice goal-setting in a friendly way
• Gain posters to display on your walls
• Tackle student problems with humor and grace!

This 29-page unit includes:
• 10 Posters, describing each of the diseases in detail
• Stations activity to view each poster in a gallery walk
• Self-Diagnosis Sheet, to use with or without the stations activity
• Goal-Setting and Treatment plan: set a goal and go through research and informal interview steps to learn more about it
• Treatment Templates: 4 sheets to help students with their action plans (a SMART goal building sheet, a group plan sheet, a sample anti-procrastination calendar template, and a personal reflection template)
• Teacher Check-Up Form: A formative assessment half-sheet (to use once OR repeatedly) as an EASY status check for student progress!
• Teacher Log: An easy form to track your students’ names, goals, and notes on their progress
