New Year's Resolutions, New Year's Goals.
This writing project is a great way to begin the New Year. It allows your students to set goals for themselves and/or to write goals ‘in role’. This package contains two different versions of four Resolution writing organizers. This project is designed for two types of writing: personal writing (Form A) and writing ‘in role’ (Form B). Your students are able to use any of the four forms to set goals and resolutions for the coming year (personal narrative). However, the second version of these forms is designed for writing ‘in role’. Students are able to write ‘in role’ to create resolutions for: fairy tale characters, literary characters from their novels, historical figures, popular culture icons, famous scientists, etc. It is a great way to extend thinking to other disciplines in a fun and whimsical fashion. Our seventh grade students love this activity. It can be adapted from grade 4 to grade 12 using the content they are studying. It can be adapted for use across the curriculum (Socials, Science, Math, English, Music, Art).
This package contains: teacher directions, two versions of four different types of resolution graphic organizers, student samples. This unit is ready to go, no prep is required.
