A log for students to set a GPA goal, log steps they've taken that week to work towards it (aka, study skills), and create goals for themselves in the coming week--with a space at the bottom for both the student and their guardian to sign. It is designed to be used over and over throughout the year. This handout ALSO includes a free, engaging and motivating lesson plan to help you use it in your classroom. I like to have students place it into a portfolio. PERFECT for use in a study hall, AVID class, or even counseling!
I created the Success log in response to a particularly tricky 6th grade AVID class I had one year. It was clear to me that my students were struggling to see the connection between the little things—taking notes, asking the teacher for help, and completing their homework—and their own grades. Because they didn’t know what they could do to raise their grades, it started affecting their confidence in school. I wanted something that would empower my students, that would give them the keys to take control.
While I’ve primarily used these resources for 6th graders, it can be used *repeatedly* with secondary students of all ages. All students can benefit from reminders about what resources and advocacy tools exist in their own toolbox to help them along, as well as checking in with how well they’re using them.
