Last month, I wrote about how our school has decided to explicitly emphasize Social Emotional Learning, and how our Small Learning Community had chosen to focus initially on student goal-setting (see Supporting School-Wide Social Emotional Learning).
It’s going quite well, and our SLC Lead Teacher, Pam Buric, has done a great job building a leadership team to make it happen and to encourage all teachers to support it.
Several of our teachers have developed goal-setting resources specific to their classes and/or to ensure that the concept of goal-setting is supported SLC-wide, and have agreed to let me share them here:
Elisabeth Johnson modified the goal-setting form that Katie Hull and I developed so that it could be more applicable to her Social Studies classes.
Blia Vue has created a different goal-setting form that is also applicable to Social Studies courses.
And Nina Collins created a poster that all teachers could hang in their rooms.
I feel very lucky to work with such a great group of talented and committed colleagues who are willing to freely share with the wider education community!
