Product Description
End of Year Activities: High School
Write a letter to an incoming 9th Grader

This resource contains a complete set of student materials and a rubric for a meaningful end of year activity for high school students: writing a letter of advice to an incoming 9th grader.
Students first brainstorm and think through 18 end of year reflection questions such as:
-What was your favorite part of high school?
-What should students know about teachers in high school?
-What was the most important lesson you learned in class in high school? Why was this lesson important?
Students then take their answers to those questions and compose a multi-paragraph letter of advice to an incoming 9th grader.
This resource also includes a rubric for ease of grading.

This end of year activity for high school is a ZIP file that includes PDFs of the following:
-Teacher Directions (1 page)
-Student Materials for writing the letter (3 pages)
-Grading Rubric (1 page)
