The Basics
Review your dataSet your goalsReview your progressRepeat!

What Data Do I Have?
  • Speech Videos
  • Peer Feedback
  • Grades/Comments on Work
  • WPP Scores
  • Reflection - find something you notice as a possible goal area. Figure out what kind of data you can collect to demonstrate growth.

How will I choose goals?

Look through your data, answer the guiding questions and then develop three goals for the semester (one for speaking, one for writing, and one of your choice from the other categories).

This example

Based on your goals and interests, choose the appropriate project you will work on for the semester. Fill out the portion at the bottom of the doc titled "Written Education Plan". Turn in a link to your goal setting doc to edmodo once you have completed it.
