From the social media phenomenon "I Wish my Teacher Knew" and the genius of I Kyle Schwartz's original lesson. ( I take no credit for her idea, hashtags, or anything else).
I simply created a writing prompt worksheet that can be used to get to know your students on a deeper level at the beginning of the year.
This provides an opportunity for students to share intimate details about their lives, their work ethic, and their passions. Start your #classroomcommunity off right!
