ICYMI Aim Higher: Outgrow Old Goals and Set New Ones

Aim Higher Blog Series

Last week Tara, Betsy, Dana, Anna, Stacey and I wrote about the importance of having writing goals for your students: how to set them, how to keep track of them, how to make them visible, and how to make them a part of your daily classroom life.

In cased you missed it, here’s a round up of our posts:

On Monday, Dana wrote about setting individualized editing goals.

On Tuesday, Anna blogged about the research behind giving effective feedback in the form of a goal, and how to make goals visible to kids.

On Wednesday, Stacey shared ways to get to know your students better as writers.

On Thursday, Tara wrote about using a variety of mid-year assessments in order to look back and look ahead toward new goals.

On Friday, Betsy’s post was about setting goals in kid-friendly ways with young writers.

On Saturday, my post (Beth) was about the role of writing goals in conferring with students.
