3 Ways to Practice Student Goal Setting

Motivate students to improve their skills with goal-setting. The strategies in this next video can be used to help students set both academic and personal goals.

In the second activity, students set goals together as a class and record them on a poster to serve as a reminder throughout the year. Peer feedback can also be used as a way to set goals!

This final activity is such an empowering one since students have the opportunity to help each other grow!
