Setting SMART Goals
This is a lesson on learning about and using SMART goals in the short and long term for high school students.
Wants & Needs to SMART Goals
Have students list things that they want and things that need now and in the future.
Direct Instruction: Teach what each letter in a SMART goal stands for. Have students practice creating SMART goals in groups.
Worksheet: Have students complete the SMART goals time capsule page. This can be pulled back out and reviewed throughout the year and especially at the end of the year. I used this with 9th graders and then put the sheet in those students graduation packets.
SMART Goals Time Capsule
S-Specific- What do you want?
M- Measurable- How will you know when you have it?
A- Attainable- How can you do it?
R- Relevant/Realistic- Is it worth it/can you do it?
T- Timely- By when?
|S||I want to earn|
|A||By doing a chore for my mom|
|R||If she agrees|
|T||By the end of the week.|
|T||By the end of ninth grade|
|T||By the end of high school|
|T||By the end of college/tech school|
