As educators, we routinely work at setting goals for our students. From improving abilities and meeting guidelines to being kind and putting the tops back on the glue sticks, there’s always something to work towards. SMART is an abbreviation that helps us to compose significant and quantifiable objectives. The letters of the acronym stand for specific, measurable, achievable, results-focused, and time-bound. SMART objectives can be used in an assortment of settings such as business, school, or setting personal goals. Students watched a video explaining the components of the SMART acronym and then wrote their own personal goals, explaining how they plan to apply those components to their goals. Hopefully, these skills will help our students continue to set goals for themselves in the future!
