Mentoring Workshop 1:
Setting S.M.A.R.T. Goals
February 3, 2017
In addition to doing your Knowledge Artifact (24 points), you will be required to evaluate your
group member(s) in a Peer Evaluation (6 points).
Mentoring Workshop 1: S.M.A.R.T. Goals
• Goals should clearly define what you want to do.
o What do you plan to do?
o How will you do it?
o Why is it important to you?
• Scenario: Allen wants to go to graduate school after finishing his undergraduate
o What? Attend graduate school
o How? Making the highest grades possible and passing the GRE
o Why? Allen wants to be able to do the research to support teachers in their classrooms
• You must have tangible evidence that you are working toward a goal
• If you have a large project, there will be small steps toward accomplishing long-term goals
o Proximal/short-term goals – Example: Allen would have to at least make the Dean’s
List each semester until he graduate
