    Setting SMART Goals

    Overview

    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.
