HLP #11: Goal Setting

“This video provides a definition, background, and rationale for high-leverage practice (HLP) 11 and demonstrates three key components of this HLP through video exemplars from general and special education teachers. This video includes two parts: Part 1 defines short- and long-term goals and provides a rationale for identifying and prioritizing learning goals for students with disabilities.  Part 2 demonstrates how various individual student data sources, state standards, and the IEP support educators in identifying essential areas of need to develop long- and short-term goals” (Bailey et al.).
