Hello colleagues, As we begin a new school year, many of us are thinking about ways to effectively support students to set goals. Research has shown that working toward a clear goal is important in academic achievement as well as personal development.
For example, check out this abstract of a 2014 article "Writing about Goals Enhances Academic Performance and Aids Personal Development" by Locke, Morisano and Schipper.
What process do you use to support student goal setting? Do you engage learners in writing about their goals? How do you structure revisiting and updating learner goals? What tools have you found useful? It would be wonderful to share some of our best practices here on LINCS.
Cheers, Susan Finn Miller
