Setting goals is a great way to start 2019! This digital New Year's Resolutions activity helps to build community, addresses those speaking and listening standards, and incorporates technology. Students will collaborate in ONE Google Slides presentation to share what their goals are for the new year. They'll take part in a class discussion slide, stating one of their New Year's Resolutions and then create their own digital resolutions poster.
