“Now more than ever, students need to be involved in their goals in order to learn. This book demonstrates how goal setting can be a critical way to realize students’ potential,” Chris MinichCEO of NWEA. Nordengren provides research-backed evidence along with valuable advice to all teachers on the power of goal setting to enhance learning, motivate students, and create long-term knowledge that helps students succeed.
“Goal setting is about taking concrete learning steps that can motivate students. Goals provide students with the opportunity to take charge of their own learning, connect what they are studying to their long-term ambitions, and experience success no matter what grade level or above their current knowledge sits,” Nordengren said. At a particularly timely time as students and educators deal with challenges such as the pandemic, the increasing rate at which students are moving between different schools and different school districts, and the challenging emotional pressures of growing up in the 21st century.”
