learning targets for today
Learning Targets for Today
  • We will learn why goal setting is vital in student achievement.
  • We will learn some strategies to use when making goals with students.
creating a classroom environment that supports goal setting
Creating a Classroom Environment that Supports Goal Setting
  • Create an emotionally safe environment where students feel comfortable discussing their own strengths and weaknesses, and the strengths and weaknesses of their peers.
  • Consistently honor and celebrate individual strengths.
  • Focus on growth for all students.
  • Support students in their willingness to grow and take risks.
goal setting in action
Goal Setting in Action
  • Model individual goal setting by establishing class goals first.
  • Great goals include what students need to learn, an action plan for that learning, a list of resources to get to that learning and a timeline.
  • Explain S.M.A.R.T. goals to students (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Timely)
why set goals
Why Set Goals?
  • Goals focus us on a specific target.
  • Without goals, we tend to become scattered in thoughts and actions.
  • Goals direct our minds on achievement.
  • Goal setting improves everyday actions and decision making.
  • Goal setting provides us with a sense of purpose.
  • Goal setting develops our skills and talents.
before map testing
Before MAP Testing
  • Introduce or explain MAP testing to students especially for those who may never have taken the tests.
  • Explain the GOAL CARDS that are provided to the students. These cards can also be used to track lines as students read on the computer screen.
  • GOAL CARDS will help students in determining their targets for growth.
after map testing
After MAP Testing
  • Students record their scores on the GOAL CARDS as they finish testing.
  • Students reflect (in writing) on their experiences on the MAP.
  • There is significant importance that written reflection plays in MAP testing. Writing helps the student to effectively and personally evaluate and process their experience.
reflections
Reflections
  • Where there any words or ideas that were new or unfamiliar to you while you were taking the test?
  • What was your highest area?
  • Why do you think this is one of your strengths?
  • How can this strength help you to work on other areas that may be weaker for you?
reflections1
Reflections
  • What was your lowest area?
  • Would this area be a good goal for you this year? Why or why not?
  • If you scored lower on an area this time, why do you think you did so?
  • Do the scores you received on MAP match what you know about yourself as a student?
self monitoring
Self Monitoring
  • We want students to be able to self monitor and to develop motivation.
  • Self Monitoring could include graphs of progress, could be made visible as a GOAL WALL, could be weekly reflections.
  • Self Monitoring could also include Self Assessment Forms.

Goal Setting – Learning Targets
