Here is a simple, fun, community-building assignment that allows each student the chance to shine as Star of the Week! The weekly class "star" can easily be assigned as a job on your weekly job chart, or choose student names at random. This instructional sheet makes the creative task clear to students and works well as a homework assignment. In my class, students present for about 15 minutes (including time for questions, comments, and connections from classmates) each Friday, and it's a routine my whole class enjoys. I like to follow up with an e-card of congratulations to each weekly class star.
