Beginning of the school year activities

It is time to begin thinking about the first few days of school, meeting new students, seating charts, assigning textbooks, and all of the other fun stuff that gets thrown your way as a teacher.

One of my favorite ways of getting to know students is to talk about goals. What I hope to achieve in our class together, on a personal level, and why goal setting is so important.

We have included a copy of the 5 Goals for the Semester handout we use. Please feel free to modify in any way for your class, and let me know how it goes if you use it!
