Goal Centered Learning

Iowa 4-H
The purpose of this document is to articulate the relationship between 4-H project areas, goals, exhibits, and evaluation when a 4-H member chooses to exhibit at a County Fair. It also seeks to clarify the philosophy of the Iowa 4-H Youth Development Program to staff, county fair judges, and other caring adults about the balance we attempt to achieve between goal-centered learning and exhibit standards.

The skill of goal setting and working to achieve a goal is something 4-H strives to teach and practice in all parts of the educational program. How can adults help 4-H members understand how project area goals relate to exhibits goals, how exhibits are evaluated by judges, and how these pieces fit together? Parents and volunteers help 4-H members learn how to set goals and help them find ways to demonstrate their learning through an exhibit. Judges help 4-H members think about which standards apply to their exhibits based on their goals and then discuss how well the 4-H member met those standards.
