Order of Activity: (40 min)

Introduction: (5 min)
Review why wonder is important and what it is.
o Ask for some examples of wonder and how it makes things
more interesting and causes us to study more and better.
Ask about whether we should study hard and make plans.
o What is the point of studying and going to school (wisdom,
employment, happiness)?
Ask if people who dont make plans can accomplish much in life.
o Those who fail to plan are planning to fail.
What is a habit?
o Are lazy people happy?
o We must have good habits if we are to be good students.
What do you know about good goal setting and good study habits?
o This activates prior knowledge.
o Do you want to learn even more?
What are strategies vs. rules?
o Can you give some examples?
E.G. dont pick your nose vs. compare and contrast
different sources of information

Body: (30 minutes)
3 points to organizing your life
o Big goals/mission statement, main steps, small steps to be
taken immediately
Give an example (I want to be a doctor, etc)
o Write on board what that might look like.
Ask for them to give an example.
o Also an example about study goals...
On the board, begin a list of all the things that should be 1) goals,
2) steps, 3) proximate steps
o Have running list of what they say underneath
o Add: look up words in dictionaries, ask experts like your
parents, find videos and resources online to read, never put
things off (bad habit that will haunt you for life), take time
to review what you dont know and thing about why you
dont understand it, YOU ONLY KNOW SOMETHING IF YOU
Make all of these into imperative statements.
Contingency planning (also on board)
o What could go wrong?
o What can be done to avoid that?
Getting sick or falling behind, ergo stay ahead of
Not done at last minute since family had so much to
do over the weekend, therefore know your full
schedule and plan ahead. (Note how this is what all
successful people do).
o Now that we have goals we can use those goals to see how
well we are doing.
What would an example of that look like?
Give Planning Sheet to all students. I WILL COLLECT THEM AND
o Explain the various headings and what goes there
o Tell them to use what is on the board and whatever else
comes to mind, i.e. make it personal.

Closure: (5 minutes)

If you want to get somewhere, you need a map. This is a map.
Make things like this in your life so you get where you want to
Can this be reviewed and changed?
o Constantly seeking improvement.
o Can you give an example? (Dont understand
mechanical energy, I will ask Mr. Tanner to spend five
extra minutes after class reviewing it.)

Evaluation Process:
- Students will be assessed based on:
o Class participation
o Planning Sheet

I will follow up with the students regularly to review their
goals and strategies.

I do not know of any inclusionary needs for this group.

Resources Required:
- Planning Sheets

Notes: Be sure to keep students on task when they are working.

Reflection: I expect for this lesson to go well. Pay close attention to the
modeling to be sure that the students do indeed understand what you are
asking of them. If they dont, reassess your presentation of the material.
