As teachers we strive to ensure that students are taking an active role in their education. To help accomplish such a task, students need to set goals and aspire towards them. I send this form home with each student’s report card. I instruct the parents to look over the report card with their student and then pick any two items from the list provided they would like to see growth in. Once they have decided, place a check mark next to their choice and bring the form with them to their scheduled Parent Teacher Conference appointment. We discuss their choices at the conference. I keep a copy for their student file and parents keep a copy to take home. At the next conference I pull out the form and discuss how the student is progressing towards the goal.
