Goal Setting to Empower and Motivate Students

Professional Learning Workshop

Use goal setting with students to motivate, increase learning, express confidence, and achieve aspirations.

Equip students to own their learning journeys

Research-driven and practical, this suite shows teachers how to integrate formative assessment, student metacognition, and motivational strategies to make goal setting an integral instructional strategy.

Get started with student goal setting

This suite is based on the book Step Into Student Goal Setting: A Path to Growth, Motivation, and Agency, a joint publication of Corwin® and NWEA®, written by Chase Nordengren. A copy of the book is bundled with the professional learning purchase and used as an integrated part of the professional learning experience.
