word of the week

study skill

highlight the answers in the text

How to incorporate the study skill: Highlight the words or sentences that provide students with the answers to the questions. This requires them to have to prove their answers rather than guess. Students may have to reread the passage to find the answers.



Being Purposeful is having a clear focus, instead of being confused or unsure of what you are doing or why you are doing it. You are acting purposefully when you have a goal you are working toward. You concentrate your mind and your efforts so that something good will happen as a result.

You are practicing purposefulness when you...

  • Have a clear vision of what you want to accomplish
  • Know why you are doing it
  • Focus on a goal
  • Get back on purpose if you get scattered or distracted
  • Do things one at a time and finish what you start
  • Persevere until you get results

"I am purposeful. I am clear about what I am doing and why. I stay focused on my goals. I know I can accomplish great things."
