Tired of boring, redundant "What's your resolution THIS time" lessons for after winter break? Try this one for 2014! It keeps the pace up with a quick succession of different, fun, but also thought-provoking activities for students -- a "Top 10 Resolutions" guessing game, a short article to annotate, an interactive "last year vs. this year" activity, and finally an in-class writing assignment.
It is highly modifiable for ANY grade, skill level, class size, or year, and even includes possible modifications written right into the lesson plan. It's also Common Core aligned with reading, writing, and speaking/listening components.
You'll get: (1) a thorough, clean Word lesson plan, (2) a fun and attractive PowerPoint, and (3) a printable two-sided Word handout with a short Forbes.com article and a cool infographic.
I'm a little late getting it published for 2013-2014, but it's EASILY used for ANY school year and will have you ahead of the game when you're not quite ready to get back into the world of planning come next January :) Enjoy and please leave feedback!
