When I think about this habit, it makes me think about how we need to consider what we want our students to e successful in before the year starts and even before teaching each lesson. We write the purpose statement on the board (in some cases, we write three purposes). Who do we want our students to be? We may not realize it, but we do ask ourselves this. We ask ourselves what type of writers do we want them to be by the end of the year? What unit do we want them to be on in math?, and so on. It is important to know what you want to see in the end before you create the steps or consider the tools. I know I wouldn’t go to Home Depot to by materials for my kitchen remodel if I had no idea what I wanted the kitchen to look like. When remodeling my garage into a gym, we had to decide what equipment was most important to us and then draw out the blue prints. I will point out the obvious. All of these areas in which I have began with the end in mind are areas that I feel comfortable and confident in. I do wonder though, and would love some feedback, about how we could possibly look at this habit in terms of our 680 course. I think that since that course is a bit more confusing to me, it might be good for me to take these habits and make those connections.
