Explicit goal-setting is linked with confidence, motivation, autonomy, and goal completion (PsychologyToday.com). As such, the explicit teaching of goal-setting can be a crucial classroom practice. This lesson consists of a HyperDoc which uses text (article) and video lecture (TEDTalk) to communicate the importance and process of setting goals. This lesson seeks to expose students to a variety of information on the importance and process of setting goals. Students read a short article entitled, "5 Reasons Why Goal Setting Will Improve Your Focus" and view a TEDTalk entitled, "Why the Secret to Success is Setting the Right Goals". Students will respond to each text by clarifying their understanding and reflecting on the content. Students then set their own personal and educational goals. This lesson can be used at any time to enhance student motivation or focus that would benefit from having concrete goals. This lesson was curated by Tyler Barna for the 2020 NDE OER Workshop and is designed for a middle-level English Language Arts classroom. It is expected that this lesson will take students 45 minutes to complete. All materials are linked digitally within the lesson.
