My Goals

Goals



 Shoot for the moon.  Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars. 
 ~Les Brown


Set up this page for your goals.  You will establish both short and long-term goals for the year.  The process of goal-setting turns portfolio development into powerful support for lifelong learning.  These goals can be set up by nine weeks, semester, or as year-long goals.  At the conclusion of each (designated time period), you will write a reflection about the goal process.    

**Teachers- at the beginning of the year, you might consider asking students to answer the following seven questions as an intro to their goal page.  (these are only suggestions)

1.  Your knowledge:  What do you know a lot about?
2.  Your skills:  What do you know how to do well?
3.  Your strengths:  What is the characteristic you are most known for?
4.  Your abilities:  What kinds of things do you believe you have a talent for?
5.  Your interests:  What kinds of things do you love to do?
6.  Your experience:  What are some interesting things you have done and seen in your life?
7.  Your one special thing!!??  

Begin the goal-setting process by answering the following questions:

*  How will I handle a challenge?
*  Do I have the strategies it takes?
*  What gifts do I bring to the world?
*  Can my gifts help me engage in the world?
*  What do I see myself accomplishing in the next five year, ten years....?
*  What steps have I taken toward attaining success?
*  My goals are.......

*NOTE:  These goal questions were taken from chapter 4- Self-Awareness, from the book, Classroom Habitudes:  Teaching Habits and Attitudes for 21st Century Learning, by Angela Maiers
