  • Goal setting is a necessary and important component of students' motivation, self-regulation, and achievement in academic settings. Goal setting refers to the process of establishing that behavior or outcome to serve as the aim of one's actions. Goals can exert positive effects in achievement. By directing learners' attention to important activities and away from distractions and by focusing their effort and persistence toward goal attainment, students will be successful in achieving their goals as readers and writers. Setting clear goals and using strong samples of mentor texts will play an integral role in goal setting throughout the year.
