Goal setting with your student-

Goal setting with students can serve two important purposes:

1) It helps students focus on what they want to get out of their classroom learning (or life in general), and
2) It helps teachers determine what they need to teach so students can reach those goals.

There are some challenges with goal setting in the adult classroom, however. Many times, the goals that students talk about initially are vague (e.g., “I want to learn English,” “I want to learn to read”). Other times, a goal might seem so far-reaching that students can become discouraged.  Read more on page 8, Notebook, Winter 2011.
