Writing (First Day) What About Me?

Writing (First Day) What About Me?

Grades 6-12

Writing (First Day) What About Me?
The first day of school is often filled with so much administrative detail and information about the course that teachers don't have the chance to really introduce themselves to the students and vice versa. This product, Writing (First Day) What About Me?, offers teachers and students a chance to reveal their thoughts and feelings about school and themselves to each other.

Presenting an opportunity for students to find out what their teachers expect from them, and for teachers to understand what impacts their students academically and personally, this engaging activity will work in all subject areas- required and elective.

Although teachers should fill out their sheets ahead of time, they should not hand them out until the students have completed theirs.  If there is time in class, students should start their sheets, and then complete them at home where they will have more time to think about their answers.

Teachers should require students to finish this activity within the first 2-3 days of school so they can explore their learners’ views and beliefs as soon as possible.

Welcome back to an inspiring and motivational 2014-2015 school year.

Happy Teaching,
