Activity Overview


When someone does not get what they set out to achieve, they may get frustrated and give up. We don’t want our students lowering their confidence when they're trying to achieve a goal. To help them with perspective, remind students that there are many things out of the their control. For example, students cannot control what will be on their test. The path to a good grade is to pay attention in class, do their assignments, and study. When students do everything they can, they should be able to achieve a lot of their goals. In this activity, students will controllable and uncontrollable aspects of their goals. With this, they'll be able to better form an action plan on how to achieve the goals they set.
