This project is great to use in the beginning of the year. Students will fill out a four square graphic organizer discussing favorite things about themselves, what they did over the summer, successes of the previous year and goals for the new year. Their are three graphic organizers that are differentiated based on Low, On-level, and advanced. This allows you to differentiate the instruction. Attached is also a peer assessment checklist that students can use to assess each-others work and a student and teacher rubric.
