Ensuring we Are Working towards Achieving Our Goals
Students this week have been asked to take responsibility towards achieving their goals. They are doing this by identifying what they can actively do at home to make steps towards getting to where they would like to be.
Many students will be keeping reading logs which they can share with me. A summary of each chapter they have read would be evidence of having been responsible for their own learning.
I am looking forward to seeing evidence of learning and progress being made over the next few weeks.
