What is your SMART goal?
Lesson Plan Reference
Grade Level 6-8
Difficulty Level 2 (Reinforcing / Developing)
Type of Assignment Individual
When we ask students to think about their goals and dreams in life, many times you get general statements without a feasible plan to accomplish them. Reinforcing the specific characteristics in creating SMART goals will help students form an outline to achieve their goals.
Goals should be specific. Eliminating vague desired outcomes will help focus the next steps. Goals should be measurable. How will you know when your goal is achieved? Action is the next aspect. What do you have to do in order to reach your goal. Realistic is the fourth part of a SMART goal. Is your goal doable? Finally, the last aspect is time. How much time will you need to achieve your goal.
After covering the different aspects of SMART goals, students can make a storyboard visualizing their goal. Provide the titles in each cell for students to know where to define and illustrate them.
