This is a great prompt for the new year or, really, anytime. I think it's a great prompt because it requires students to be introspective and accountable. It poses that great question: How can I be better? I completed a portion of this assignment so that my students could see exactly what my expectations are for this assignment. They love seeing MY areas for self-improvement. I've included my example for your use as well. I am uploading this lesson in document form so that you may edit it to suit your needs. You may purchase this prompt individually here or bundled with the following four other prompts: Fear, Love, and Loss; Shake my Hand; Disappearance; and The Ideal Mate.
