Monitoring Progress Towards Goals

Around two weeks ago my students finished up a math unit and started a new one.  Students previewed the next unit by reviewing a study guide and looking ahead at the skills in their consumable math journals.  They then made appropriate goals based on the preview.  I spoke with the students afterwards and helped them reshape the goals to be more aligned to what’ll be explored during the next unit.  I wrote about this process here and then started to think about next steps.

Some students created goals related to topics that we haven’t explored yet, while others felt more prepared to answer.  My students around about a 1/3 through the current unit. This week students checked on their progress towards the goal.  My intention was for students to become more aware of their goal and the progress made towards its completion.

I think in the future I’d like to create some type of scale where students identify the progress made towards the goal instead of a met/not prompt.  I’m looking forward to revisiting and refining this idea as the year progresses.
