Clear Goals and Expectations Lead to Success

Goals that have clarity and expectations that are clear set the stage for success? What are your program goals and expectations? As I begin to think about this, I identify the following from my perspective as a grade-level math/science teacher:

  • Students will learn all math standards with depth and flexibility.
  • Students will be happy, engaged, and empowered at school.
  • Students will learn to be good teammates, and experience what it's like to be an important part of a positive team.
  • Students will understand that they are in charge of their learning and that they are capable of learning anything they put their mind and time to.
  • Students will learn about themselves as learners and use that knowledge to elevate their learning.
  • Students will learn the science standards and utilize those standards with the design process in STEAM activities.
I'll likely add to this list in the days ahead.
