Write a letter to a future student
It can be hard to know what to do with your students during those few last classes. Schedules and students always seem to get a bit wonky at the end of year. One of my favorite activities is to have students write a letter to a future student, giving them advice as to how to succeed in the class.
There are a few reason that I like this.
It can fit into the crazy end of the year schedule
It gives the students in the class a voice
It provides me with helpful feedback and insight. ( Of course there are always a few that aren't so helpful)
There a great tool to use at the beginning of the next year. Perfect way to start discussions, and students take the advice more seriously as it’s coming from other students instead of me.
