This sounds like something you need to answer for your instructor. It sound as if your instructor is looking for you to reflect upon your own performance and come to conclusions about how you wish to grow your writing, understanding of grammar, or your ability to read.

Although we can't write essays for you, I would recommend you pick a topic within each of the three areas above and write a body parargraph about each. For example, I want to grow right now in my ability to compare works that I read to each other. For me, this is going to take considering what I know about time periods, cultures, author styles, and background knowledge. Considering setting 3 goals, and wrap your essay around those ideas.

I believe that your instructor may also be looking for you to do some self reflection. You should try to relate back to the beginning of the course and reflect on what your goals were then. By comparing your previous goals with your current goals your will be able to determine personal growth. This will also make it easier to map out how you intend to finish off the course.

Your professor wants you to create goals so that you will be successful. Goals give you something specific to focus on and they also give you something to work towards.

This is highly subjective.  I am not sure anyone in this forum can write this for you or even begin to answer it for you.  The previous thoughts of personal reflection are essential.  I think that there can be some guiding questions that you might want to pose in order to start this process.  One such question would be where you see your own personal areas of improvement as being.   In which area do you think your own growth has not happened as much as it could have and where you would like to experience it?  Where have you seen the greatest amount of improvement and success over the last year and what would you like to see continue?  Questions such as these might help with answering such a reflective and personal prompt.
