Start the year off strong! Have students consider their core values and how these values, when examined consciously, allow them to achieve their goals. This mini-unit allows you to get to know your students and their current writing strengths and needs. It simultaneously guides students toward learning new speaking and writing skills, all while considering how who we are and what we believe can drive our future! Lastly, this unit brings students together. You begin the necessary and exciting journey toward creating a classroom environment built on mutual trust and respect.
This folder contains everything that you need:
1. Teacher Directions and Pacing
2. Core Values PowerPoint - simple and engaging
3. Core Values Bag Handout
4. Letter Writing Handout (This graphic organizer scaffolds students toward writing their rough and final drafts; it of course has an easy-to-follow rubric)
I am excited to share this engaging, thoughtful, and real world unit with you!
