Teaching students how to set goals is an important part of their education.
This powerpoint presentation discusses the key elements of SMART goals to ensure that your students are working toward meaningful achievements.
This presentation can be used as a stand-alone lesson or used as an introduction to students developing and working toward their own SMART goals.
Together with the presentation I have included a template for use with your students in assisting them to answer key questions when determining their goals.
In my classroom, once goals have been written, students complete a reflective journal each week to determine progress toward their goals and attend teacher conferences about their achievements.
