This graphic organizer helps students formulate ideas to serve as the foundation of their personal credos.
The breakdown of this graphic organizer follows the same paragraph format and organization that Robert Fulghum uses in his credo, "All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten." This is part of the College Board Springboard textbook for 11th grade, and can be found starting on p. 327. Students can use Fulghum's paragraphs/sections as an example that correlates to the prompts on this GO.
Writing the credo is the Embedded (Summative) Assessment for "The Pursuit of Happiness" unit.
