A student pointed out today that it was like the scientific method, which I thought was absolutely brilliant! It is essentially. It works, and it give students a good model for risk taking. Today we did that with a gallery walk on goal setting. Students wrote down goals that they could have for their lives (I gave them the four categories). We then practiced leaving kind, specific, and helpful feedback on their goals. As we continue to work on how to set goals and reflect on the, we will be introducing S.M.A.R.T. goals, but it was great to hear kids already saying, "That goal doesn't really tell you what you need to do to achieve it." Oh man, the gold, the sheer gold.
