This is an "Application" for promotion into the next grade.
Students will reflect on their academic and personal achievements, as well as future goals and areas of needed growth.
Then, using that information, students will respond to the question:
"Why should you be promoted to the next grade?"
This should be used after teaching your Opinion/Argument Writing Unit to your students.
The Application is generic and can be use for any grade level.
It does require a student to reflect on all years prior to the current grade level, and pondering about future grade level goals.
This is a perfect culminating activity for the year!
