Goal Control: The ultimate in academic ownership

It's our goal as educators to have students take ownership for their learning, so let them have GOAL CONTROL, control of their own academic and learning goals. See how elementary classroom teachers are using Student Academic Logs (SALs) to monitor student progress, have students monitor their own progress, and conduct student conferences. You will see videos of teachers conferencing with students where students analyze their own data, determining their strengths first and weaknesses second, and ultimately setting their own goals as they move forward. You will see a variety of ways teachers allow students to track their thresholds with reading levels and test scores, motivating learners to stay on top of their goals. You will also learn how elementary students are engaged in higher levels of thinking as they retake assessments in groups, create and answer test questions for skills that were the weakest for their class and even take control of the test review by deciding the questions the teacher will review with the class.
