"My first New Year's Resolution is to get better grades in 5th period. I could get better grades by reading more than 30 minutes a night."
"Second, I need to work harder in school because I used to talk when the teacher was talking. I mean, I used to talk when the teacher was 'making us smarter.' Teachers do not just talk like we do, they help us learn."
"Finally, I want to go three years in one year at school. To do this, I could do all my homework and even ask for more work."
"Finally, I want to go to High Point C. I do not want to be left behind when everyone else moves up and I want to learn harder stuff. I want to stay in this class, which is the best."
This is my favorite:
"Second of all, I want to advance to High Point C. I could accomplish this goal by paying closer attention to the stories and question. I will also read the stories before I answer the questions on the test, and also check my answers carefully. Finally, I will try to talk less during class time. to acheive this, I will ignore my friends and focus on my work, or I will try to think about my school grades and what will happen if they get worse. I will give myself time to talk to them during brunch, lunch, before or after school. Class time is learning time, not talking time."
