Goal setting is a powerful life skill! I have my students set their goals each trimester (both personal and academic goals). We then create a plan to meet these goals and reflect on our progress at trimester's end. Students also show evidence of meeting the chosen standards by attaching work samples and/or projects to the Student Portfolio Sheet.
These are stored in a folder and presented upon parent conference time (I use the student-led conference model).
**Note: This is the SEMESTER version of the activity.
