•Manage expectations by setting a maximum of five goals that are within students’ scope of abilities and resources.
• Be SMART about goal setting by making sure they are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-specific.
• Take it one step at a time by breaking goals into smaller, more manageable chunks.
• Figure out how to track progress using notebooks, boards, spreadsheets or applications so students can stay motivated.
• Embrace mistakes as opportunities to learn and improve rather than getting discouraged.
