Q3 goals presentation rubric
Writing: I will write a short story each other week based on/continued from a movie, TV show, or book. I will know when I if I have completed it because I will keep a folder on my desktop. Since there are 9 weeks left in quarter 4, I should have 4-5 documents by the end of quarter 4. This goal is achievable if I put my mind to it, and I know I will because I love reading continuations or made up stories based on published media. 1 story a week is realistic, I just need to take a little time out of my reading, homework, and free time.
Reading: I will read at least 15 books by the end of quarter 4, all from a wide array of genres. The evidence will be on my reading log. This goal is achievable because I love reading in general, especially from fantasy and fiction books. I have limited myself less this quarter so I may read more and read with a little more freedom. 15 books in 9 weeks should realistic if I put my mind to it. I will finish this goal by the end of quarter 4.
