These decisions will have far-reaching implications for the success of the year. Putting together a cohesive plan rather that reacting to interruptive situations allows time for the teacher to respond thoughtfully when problems arise.

It shows an academic performance goal on the chart, which can help both the teacher and parents know if the student is making progress to meet the intended goal. They are also easy to understand and may help the teacher know what students are understanding the material and focus more on helping those that are struggling.
