Student Goal Setting Worksheet Scaffolding and Extension Tips
Challenge students to either fill out a plan for both a personal and an academic goal, 2 personal, or 2 academic goals by a certain date. They could also create art (like a magazine collage) to support goal setting and present the plan to their class.
Students who are struggling to understand this concept might verbally explain to the teacher the goal they want to set and the date by which they want to achieve the goal, while the teacher assists with writing complete sentences for this resource.
