The goal setting process and reflection process is the cornerstone to all student led or student involved conferences.

Goal Setting Areas

Many students would like to use the standard goal of "I will be on honor roll", but as educators we must push them to think deeper and grow as individuals. Ask students to create goals in three distinct areas:

  • Intellectual/Academic
  • Physical/Wellness
  • Personal/Behavior

If they still choose the honor roll goal, the responsible teacher response should be, "And what would prevent your from getting onto honor roll?" The answer to this question usually ends up becoming the student's goal. Some students would like to see examples of goals in the three areas. Share them after your class has gone through a brainstorming session.
