Providing students with the opportunity to establish their own learning goals is an essential factor in stimulating them to assume learning responsibility. Since the experience may be new for students, careful teacher planning for the first day is necessary and includes such preparations as creating a guideline of objectives, arranging the classroom in groups, obtaining necessary materials (dittoes, newsprint, markers), and composing a worksheet of specific directions to be followed by each group as it discusses its goals for the year. On the second day, full class discussion of the goals set up by the individual groups provides the opportunity for deciding upon a final list of class goals for the year. (Sample worksheets for the first and second days are included.) (JM)
