The Inferencing and Goal Setting New Year Activity is designed to help students make inferences about the meaning of the word “Firebreather” (as it relates to athletes) using their prior knowledge and the clues given.
A “Firebreather” is someone who is relentless and perseveres through hardships.
Then, students will use the definition they inferred (and the actual definition) to set 2 goals for how they can be Firebreathers in 2018 personally and academically. They will list ideas for how to become Firebreathers in their personal lives and academically.
Included are two inferencing organizers, a definition sheet, and two goal sheets. See preview.
This activity promotes and encourages growth mindset.
