Product Description
Sick of unrelated "team building" or "getting to know you activities" during the first week of school?

I was as well. So I created this to make sure I built community, got a writing sample, got a sense of everyone's presentation skills, and learned names in the first week of school.

The first weeks of school are always a stressful time. Take some of the stress away with this meaningful first week of school activity.

Made up of Three Parts:

1.) Students name themselves from a list of SAT Words
2.) They interview a partner and
introduce them to the class. (Get an oral presentation out of the way in the first week!)
3.) Write a Letter of Recommendation for that student.

I have taught this with both a 90 minute block schedule and 45 minute everyday schedule, in high school. I take the first day to introduce myself/go over the syllabus. Then this activity takes up about a week. The students like it, they know their classmates, and I get a very good sense of who is in my class.

It fulfills the need to ease into the school year without doing a bunch of "fake" fun activities that serve no educational purpose.

Includes:
- 9 page packet for students.
- Packet includes a rubric for presentation and letter.
- Sample interview questions
- Notes sheet for presentation
- Guide to what goes in each paragraph for reluctant writers.
- A Powerpoint that guides you through each stage.

Use the first week of school to get all that paperwork done and let this be your lesson plan.
