Do you use goal setting to help students to improve their writing? This resource contains 21 different writing goals covering punctuation, sentence types, sentence level, text organisation, descriptive language, use of connectives and editing.
Using a negotiated goal setting technique, students and I identify their next steps in writing and select a focus goal from the set. Their kite is then placed on the goal 'cloud' as a visual reminder in class. Everytime they meet their target they identify by putting a G in a circle on their page. Students need to meet their goal on 3 separate occasions to move onto a new goal.
