What the goal means: What this goal means is that you should explain your thinking when you are taking a test or in a group. I also think this means that you should explain your thinking so others can get to know you better. I also think that this goal means that you should be able to explain why you did something.
Why the goal is important: This goal is important because if you are on a test they might ask you to explain your thinking. It is important to learn how to explain your thinking because people can get to know you better if you can show your thinking. I also think that you should be able to show your thinking when you do homework.
Evidence that tells you that you was successful in meeting this goal:
