District 100's Strategic Plan calls for a more student-centered approach to education.
One way we are doing that at Lincoln Elementary is through goal setting with students. In some classrooms, students have been setting learning goals for themselves all year long, working to achieve their goal, then “testing” or proving their learning to show they have accomplished their goal.
As a matter of fact, in our kindergarten classrooms, students have been setting goals all year long and have been so excited to share when they meet those goals. Goal setting is just one way to help our students “own” their learning and be an active part of moving themselves forward.
We are really excited for how this is allowing us to meet students where they are at. We look forward to continuing on this journey with our students and families into next year. Please watch the video below for more information!
