A lot can change for your students over the course of an academic year. This lesson asks students to reflect on how they have changed by writing a letter addressed to his or herself at the beginning of the year. This letter will help them realize how much you have grown and what they can work on to better themselves in the next year(s) to come. There are suggestions/prompts for each paragraph asking them to detail their accomplishments, what they wish they had done differently, and what they expect of themselves in the future. A template and a template example is included.
