When meeting with students, I begin the session by reviewing the five components of a SMART goal.
All of this information is recorded on the student's goal setting worksheet. At the end of the session, I give each student a copy of their worksheet and and place a copy in my counseling file. My hope is that throughout the year I can reference the worksheet and help students keep track of the progress they are making toward reaching their goal.
