Goals for Success Rough Draft
As part of the writing process, it is important to first write a rough draft of any formal written work that you will present. A rough draft provides you the opportunity to expand on the elements within your outline to create a cohesive paper and to receive feedback.
Review the Outline Template you completed in Week 3, as well as the SMART Goals Worksheet from Week 2, if needed. Be sure to note any feedback from your instructor about changes you may want to consider.
Optional: Review “Writing Process” for a refresher.
Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper that describes your 3 SMART goals and your plans to achieve them. Use the outline you completed in Week 3 to help you complete your rough draft. Be sure to do the following in your paper:
Write your introduction to include the elements you developed in the outline.
- State the final version of each SMART goal, addressing each letter of the SMART acronym as it relates to the goal, as well as your responses to the questions presented in the outline.
Describe how each goal will help you achieve success in your courses, program, career, or personal life.
Write your conclusion to include the elements you developed in the outline.
