I theme my classroom each year. This year I am planning on utilizing a business model. Students applied to be considered 8th graders at the beginning of the school year. Now they will be applying for 9th grade status at the end of the school year. My goal is to help students take ownership of their educational process.
This application is modeled on real applications that are readily available.
California 8th grade ELA content standards were used for the standards history section.
The focus of this application is academic achievement. This is the central piece to a unit I am developing. Pieces (many will be free) will be uploaded as they are finalized. I created this because I could not find anything similar to suit my classroom needs.
Purchase of this product allows for modification rights. Modification includes changing the standards to meet the needs of your students and/or state.
The original was created in Google Docs for the purposes of sharing with students via Google Classroom as a template to fill out on-line. You may choose to do that as well.
This application has an added section that requires students to reflectively write about their 8th grade experience.
*NOTE - I noticed that the thumbnails of a little off, but verified the placement of sections are correct on the file.
