Regina, I did a similar AFL poject this year at the elementary level and found that when students define their goals concretely and make specific plans for reaching them, they are more likely to stick to it. They certainly have to take ownership of what they want to improve, and they learn that the locus of control truly lies within them. Isn't that our ultimate goal as counselors? I love the chart! It's a great visual aid for your students and makes them accountable for change.
