Encourage and support your students in creating individual goals! Goal setting provides a target for students to strive for, provides students with opportunities to take ownership over their learning process by allowing ‘voice and choice’, and utilizes self-reflection to build confidence and develop a growth mindset.
S– Specific, M– Measurable, A– Attainable, R– Relevant, T– Timely
Use this template to support your students in reflecting on their progress. Students can reflect independently then meet with the teacher for meaningful dialogue about their progress. Store student reflections in a goal setting binder, post them on E-portfolios, share them with parents at conferences... the possibilities are endless!
