Incorporating learning goals in the classroom is an effective way of helping to close any learning gaps while helping students become more reflective learners.
This Writing Goal Pack
is a complete bundle to help you incorporate writing goals in your classroom. Proven to be effective, it helps to enhance writing motivation and encourages students to reflect and improve upon their writing skills.
Included in this pack:
- 30 different writing goal cards
- 6 wall chart variations (a4 and a5)
Each goal card is approximately 8cm in height.
How to use:
These goal cards can be used in a number of ways.
1) The goal chart can be laminated and displayed along with a photo of the student. There are various goal charts to choose from (See the end of this pack). The student’s goals are attached to the goal chart using Velcro dots or blue tack. It is important to note that these goals should be chosen jointly with students to provide a sense of ownership. Students can unfasten the goal cards and take them to their desk during their writing activity. They can then be reattached to the chart at the end of the lesson. Alternatively, if you do not wish to use the goal chart then the cards can be kept elsewhere.
2) Before students begin a writing activity, provide each student with 1 or 2 goal cards which are in line with their learning needs. They must check and re-check that they have achieved the learning goal before handing in their work. The goal chart can be returned to you at the end of the lesson.
