This is a great end or beginning of the semester activity to get students thinking about their New Year's resolutions. It may seem like just fun, but any time students get the chance to write down their goals, I always consider it educational.
Packet prints to form a booklet that students can work in throughout the week and includes space to write their speech or essay. Brainstorming activities and grading rubric included. Packet uses research-based strategies and creative activities for students to complete.
Bonus: Take advantage of the extra credit option on the final page to engage your students' creativity!!
