Goal setting is a critical part of success in school and in life.  So, why is goal setting so challenging?  Why do some students avoid setting goals while others set goals that are unrealistic? Attendees will learn practical strategies to help students set realistic and achievable goals so that they can achieve success in all areas of their lives.

 

Executive Function and Goal-Setting: Reaching the Target for Academic Success and Beyond

Presented by: Donna Kincaid, M.Ed., & Barbara Hunter, M.Ed.

Students often struggle to create “realistic” goals. In fact, most of the goals students create for themselves are often vague and unattainable. Students are often unable to see how their day-to-day responsibilities will help them reach their goals, and, as a result, they are left feeling frustrated. As educators, one of the most useful strategies we can teach our students is how to set reasonable goals for school and for life. In this training, attendees will explore how to use CANDO goals to set students up for success, creating appropriately challenging goals for any task, from test taking, projects and essays to personal interests and lifelong dreams.  Through hands-on activities, attendees will learn how to teach goal-setting in practical ways that will motivate and empower students to take a more active role in their present and future achievements.
