Included in this package of materials are:

posters that outline possible goal behaviours in the different writing areas,

Goal setting is an important skill for students to learn. Throughout our daily lives, we strive to improve through the goals we set. In the writing area, students can learn about the goal setting process as they strive to meet goals with informative writing, narrative writing, opinion writing, report writing, letter writing, book reports, and writing skills. There are seven steps to the goal setting process:

1. Determine the Goal
2. Establish a Baseline
3. Describe Success
4. Focus on the Goal
5. Track Progress
6. Assess Achievement
7. Reflect on Goal
