Reflection: Real World Applications Working Towards a Year of Reading Development: Revisiting Goals - Section 2: Main Activity


During this discussion, I sometimes will talk about specific actions to reach goals as well as what the goal is. I notice that many students might have great goals but no real plan to accomplish them. So, at this point, I remind them that when a goal is set, you must also have steps to reach that goal, such as how many pages a day/week you will read, how much time will you read, where will you read, will you take notes after every few chapters or at the end of the book. This helps students remember to work towards their goal on a daily or weekly basis.
