What is my responsibility??? You are responsible for your own learning You ALONE earn your grade The amount of time studying is not nearly as important as what you do when you are studying
Setting Goals A goal is something you want to achieve
Short Term and Long Term Goals Short term—something you want to achieve soon Examples—finish homework, doing well on tests Long term—something you want to achieve over a period of time Examples—passing a class, graduating
Three W’s of Goals Each goal you set should include: WHAT you will do WHEN you will do it Your WILL to do it
Characteristics of Appropriate Goals ….within your skills and abilities ….realistic ….flexible ….measurable ….within your control.
To conclude…. Set goals in school that provide you with direction and lead to success!!
