Year 9 Galileo Curriculum Overview
Goal setting is a key part of metacognitive development and ensuring that students are thinking about how they think and learn throughout the term. In the first week of Galileo students set nine goals that they would like to make progress on throughout the term. This includes three skills, three knowledge areas and three personal qualities.
Learning Goals and reflective practiceStudents monitor the progress of their learning goals on their blogs where they:
- Introduce their learning goals and express they want to make progress on them
- Critically analyse their progress on their goals
- Identify key points in their week where they have progressed on their goals
- Identify how/why they may not have progress on their goals and what they can do to rectify this
