    Bundle Description

    In my school, our student publications refer to ourselves as SPUB. To play off of that, I created SPUB Starters -- Style, Photography, U-Grade It, Be Mindful -- to start my journalism classes every day. This product is labeled weeks 1-8, but these bellringers can really be used in any order at any time of year, as frequently as you'd like.

    I assign these SPUB Starters as weekly assignments, but I go over one slide per day (typically Monday through Thursday). My kids pull them up first thing when they come into class, and then they go on with their other daily work when we are done discussing.

    In my school, we do not have an intro class, so I do a very quick 6-week intro unit before we start production cycles. These starters serve as both an introduction to skills such as AP Style, interviewing and writing and a review of these skills after our intro unit is over. I decided to make the last starter of the week a “mindfulness” starter because being on staff (and being in high school in general) can get pretty stressful, so practicing a bit of purposeful reflection and focus can help kids, even if it is just a few minutes once a week.

    For each week, this product includes:

    • an editable PowerPoint (with answers in the "notes" section)
    • a printable version, with a cover page and two slides per page
    • .jpegs of all slides
