Have students pick a partner in the class and discuss eachother’s goals applying the SMART acronym: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and achievable within a given Time period. Students should exchange lists of what they plan to do on a weekly basis to move toward accomplishing their goal by the end of the term. Advise them to make plans to meet once or twice a month to discuss how they are progressing; the point is for each student to encourage and help motivate his or her partner to achieve his or her goal. Make plans for an end-of-term celebration if students meet their goals or to discuss and further motivate each other not to give up.
