Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Going for the Goal! - Section 4: Sharing and Closure


This activity did not go quite as planned! While I thought students did a great job completing the first page together, when I reviewed their work on other pages, I was pretty disappointed. It seemed like when I let them complete the remaining pages independently, their focus when straight to the drawing parts. While I’m thrilled they took the drawings seriously, it left their actual goals lacking. If I were to do this again, I would complete all of the writing portions together: have them set all five goals and explain what it would take for them to complete these goals while I was working with them. Then I would have them complete the drawings on their own.

Going for the Goal!

Unit 3: Building a Classroom Community
Lesson 4 of 5

Objective: SWBAT identify goals for themselves in five areas: reading, writing, math, community, and personal.

Big Idea: Goal setting is an important part of being successful. After identifying areas in which they've already set and achieved goals, students will think about themselves as readers, writers, mathematicians, and community members.
