Short Term Academic Goals Examples
5 Assist students in setting long and short term academic goals
Can play stimulate emotional, social, and intellectual development? Yes. Is that considered academic? This is where human development becomes more complex. Short term academic goals appear differently than long term intellectual goals. However, research points to the lasting benefits of intellectual goals as better predictors of later academic success. Intellectual goals include reasoning, analyzing, predicting, questioning, and a range of moral sensibilities. Whereas academic goals include more concrete skills such as knowing days of the week, the calendar, writing and memorizing facts. Current research indicates that both academic and intellectual goals can coexist within a thoughtfully planned and balanced learning environment. This type of environment requires a highly skilled teacher that observes student interests, assesses learning frequently, and presents material in a play-based way.
