This is an excellent Power Point presentation to use for opening your class for a new school year, or a new semester. As a new teacher, you will benefit from the English classroom organization included here. I have tried all of these things and use them yearly in my classroom. Students have produced some of the most amazing writing ever from the "Friday in the Chair" activity. Fridays are always exciting in my English classrooms. Students love to share what is going on in their lives along with their writing talents. Yearly, I compile a booklet with the samples taken from Fridays and give copies to each of the students who have participated in the project. Also, students receive a final project grade for these writings.
