Revamp goal setting in your classroom with a scaffolded, active game of Scoot. Instead of filling out a worksheet about SMART goals, students answer 20 questions that break down the goal setting process by identifying strengths/ weaknesses, interests, mentors, college/career goals, and strategies to achieve goals.
After completing this 20-question game of Scoot Goal Setting, students will have identified goals for your class and articulated how those goals fit into their larger college and career goals.
Use this as a refresh at the beginning of the semester, before test preparation to get students refocused, or at the beginning of the year.

How Does it Work:
Scoot is a silent game where students each have a Scoot Card with empty boxes for each question. Print the question cards and tape one to each desk (or seat) in your room. Students complete one question per minute starting with the desk they are seated at. When you turn the lights off, each student moves one seat to the right until they’ve answered all questions. This game is completed silently and independently, which keeps students engaged and active during Scoot.
