Back to School Edition
I remember a HUMONGOUS problem I had the first 2 years of teaching. Students were NOT motivated to come to class. They did NOT care, at all.
So, I developed a conferencing and goal-setting system I could use at the beginning of the school-year, the middle, and the very end of the school year. And IT WORKED!
What is the Process for Conferencing and Goal Setting?
|1) What will the students set goals for?||—> WIDA scores?||—> Fountas & Pinnel reading level?|
| 2) Create a visual |
|—> Make sure the visual |
can fit at the TOP of
the goal-setting sheet.
|—> Keep it visual with symbols and/or colors!|
|3) Make a student copy where they can set their goals.||—> GROWTH-MINDSET!||—> Level 5 represents what grade-level would look like at the END of the year. That way, EVERYONE can be challenged.|
|4) Use a separate copy to define the goals further.||—> or to show the scope-and-sequence of what they are learning.|
