I incorporate Common Core writing standards into the senior year journal. It includes a weekly journal topic along with a photo to help reflect over the past thirteen years of school. By printing these along the way, I am able to gather a nice graduation portfolio of the students' writing. You will see that I include reflections over a senior project, which is a six-month project students are required to complete in order to graduate. The journal itself can be submitted by students electronically or on paper. I also make a rotation schedule for the due dates in order to save myself a little correcting time. I hope you enjoy!
