Use these end of the school year task cards to help students review memories, goals, and learning in the secondary ELA classroom. Great for the last weeks of school, this activity engages students and encourages them to reflect on their experiences in English class. There are 44 questions in total (and four blank task cards for your own questions). Here are a few example questions:
1. What did you learn about yourself as a reader?
2. What are you proud of accomplishing in this class?
3. What is something that you taught a classmate or the teacher in this class? Who was it?
4. Which book improved your understanding of life or the world? What did you learn?
5. What happened in this class that made you laugh?
6. What would you tell an incoming student about this class?
7. What was something that surprised you in this class?
8. Which paper would you rewrite? What would you have changed?
9. What is a mistake you made that you want to fix next school year?
10. What is something fun that you have planned to do this summer?
Besides helping students review their memories, goals, and learning, the Twitter response handout requires students to write concise answers. It also makes their learning relevant. For extra fun, students write #hashtags. A sample response sheet and hashtag chart is included.
