The Titan Way
Enter to Learn, Leave to Serve, Return with Honor!
When I hear Eddie Oakley, Principal at Shelby County, talk about Targets, he talks about them being a "road map." He encourages his teachers to "pull out the road map throughout the trip." They realize that they can't just put it on the board and leave it. As teachers, we know we have to discuss the target regularly during class.
TARGETS show students that you are beginning with end in mind. TARGETS show students a reminder of where they are going. TARGETS show students why they are doing the work they are doing. As you plan for closure each day in your class, make sure you measure how close the class came to hitting the TARGET.
