This is a great beginning of the year activity, as you learn what your students will and will not stand for.
This activity helps to validate your students' concerns by engaging with them as grown ups. Students are very empowered when we ask about how they feel; this reflective activity promotes that.
We all know it's vitally important to truly understand your group of students. Since you will be with them for 180+, it's important to know how best to communicate with them and help their success along in a way that is most comfortable for them.
I have my students do this activity at the beginning of the school year, and I keep in my student info binder. I am able to refer to it before and during challenging discussions with some of my toughest students.
This purchase comes with teacher directions and an unlocked, fully editable student worksheet.
