These Goals are Mine
Advocacy Focus, East Early College High School
Tuesday, September 26, 2017
What are your goals? Are there different types of goals?
- The students will create a What are Your Goals mini poster?
- These posters should be artistic and placed in the room to remind the students of their goals each time they enter the advocacy room.
- Make sure they include six goals: two academic and one from community service, health/fitness, family, and leisure.
- Academic- focus on grades, study habits, tutorials, and etcetera
- Community Service- focus on assisting others on campus and the surrounding community
- Health/Fitness- focus on physical health and improvement
- Family- focus on strengthening relationships with family/or advocacy members
- Leisure- focus on activities that will serve as stress relievers
- Make sure goals are clear and specific.
Example:Incorrect: I want to get good grades.Correct: I want to make sure I earn All As in my courses, in particular, English, Biology, and World History. I will do that by studying for all my exams and making sure my projects are turned in on time. If I am struggling with my courses, I will attend tutorials at least twice a week.
Example of a Good Format; however, the students can be creative in the way they layout their goals.
Reflection and Discourse
- Why is it important that we set goals for all aspects of our lives?
