This is a homeroom/advisory activity that is done to help students manage goals. The areas are academic, social, personal, and physical. To start this activity, I usually share with my students my own goals in those areas. This way they have an idea of what they can say and they won't think of this activity as "silly". It is important to follow up on the goals with conferences (once a month is ideal). Well, as often as you can. It wouldn't be very good to set these goals and not have any follow through! It also really helps you get to know your advisory group outside of just academics. I learned quite a bit from my kids during our goal-conferences. And, they often asked me how I was doing on mine--even outside of advisory classtime. This activity, if done right, is very worthwhile.
